    I got some chicks off a breeder, They are about 5-6weeks old now and was wondering if someone could help me identify them. They should be from the following breeds; Gold laced Wyandotte, Pekin, Barnevelder, Belgium, New Hampshire, or Frizzle. I know none of them are frizzles, my frizzle sadly died [​IMG]

    The first pic looks like a New Hampshire...one thing I can tell you for sure...its a roo. His comb is huge for that age.

    The last one is a NH. They are more yellowish as chicks than RIRs are.


    Oh, jessied, did you once ask to be on my waiting list for BBS Orpington eggs? Your screen name is familiar! I had a jessied on a list ages ago and never could contact her when I was ready to send them out. But, this is your first post, so maybe just a coincidence, unless you were on the ezboard site.

    Quote:YES - New Hampshire ROO - I have one exactly the same !!!!!! He was soooo beautiful when he was that age as the feathers are just like an owl. Sadly he got darker and now is 19 weeks old. Deffinately ROOOOOOOOOOOOOSTER!

    This is Nugget with his lovely Owl colouring.
