    I posted this in another forum, but someone suggested I try it here.
    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 12 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!

    The 2nd mystery chick looks similar to what my golden campine did. I'm no expert though. Cute chicks!

    Thanks so much!! I haven't heard much about golden campine. So you possibly have any tips on how to identify the Easter Eggers? Thanks again!!

    When your chicks grow a bit, it will be easier to know what you have since so many breeds appear similar at this age.
