    I recently bought ten chicks from tractor supply. Five were RIR's and I don't know what the other five are. I would really appreciate it if someone could help me I.D. them. Thanks!

    They look like my easter eggers, but I could be wrong. So cute, thanks for sharing!

    They look exactly like my Speckled Sussex chicks. My EEs looked very similar, but they all had puffy cheeks.

    I'd be quite surprised if TSC sold Speckled Sussex. What kind of comb do they have? There are many breeds of chicken that have that chipmunk look as chicks. If it has a straight comb, maybe a brown leghorn.

    Old English and EE's look very similar. I've gotten both out of TC's chick bin. Very cute. If its a OE, Its a girl.
