    Hey guys! I'm new to the forum! This is my family's first time raising chicks. We ordered from Ideal Poultry and they finally arrived! We ordered 5 Rhode Island reds (one didn't make it), 10 Easter eggers, and we also chose the special package so now we have 17 chicks (they added 2 extra) we aren't sure of the breeds!

    I'm pretty sure this is a Rhode Island, but just wanted to check.

    And This is an Easter Eggers I believe. I read they have puffy cheeks and this one does!

    Not sure about this one. Possibly a barred rock? There are four of these but the others have white spots on there heads unlike this one. I read that Roosters typically have spots on there heads but pullets do not. Is this one a pullet then?

    No idea on this one. But I really like it!

    Any clues as to what these are would be greatly appreciated!!! Thanks guy!

    Ok, I will guess, but I have only BR and BOs..

    #1 Likely RIR.

    #2 Likely Welsummer.

    #3 Likely Barred Rock.

    #4 Welsummer?

    #5 Buff Orpington - and if larger than the others, then higher probability.


    If no others respond, try reposting under "what breed or gender is this" forum. I think you can copy and paste?

    Ok thanks so much for responding :). I didn't notice the breed and gender forum until you mentioned it. Thanks again. Do you have any ideas on how to tell which chicks are the Easter eggers?
