    Hi everyone!
    This is my first post and I just received my first order of chicks a few days ago!!
    Can y'all help me identify these two little ladies?
    I think the one with the yellow underside was my freebie.
    Thank you for all your help!! :)

    They might be Plymouth Rocks.

    It's sort of difficult for me to tell just by looking at a profile of the head. It's fun to try to figure out the puzzle!

    I don't know about others, but when I attempt to identify a chick, it's nice and helpful (not necessary) to get these views of the little one:

    -profile of the whole chick standing from the side, including head and feet

    -front view of the chick -- face straight-on, chest, and legs

    -view from the top showing the pattern on the top of the head and all the way down the neck and back of the chick

    -a good view of the comb because specific breeds have specific combs

    It's not just about colors, it's also about plumage patterns on the whole chick, shape of the chick, leg color, number of toes, feathers on which toes, and other things I'm not remembering this second.

    So, while a complete professional photoshoot isn't at all necessary, it's helpful to see a little more of the chick ... at least for me. [​IMG]

    They look like Easter Eggers because of the "muffs" on there cheeks.
