    I'm new to raising chickens and had my first ever hatch of 6/9 eggs almost a week ago. I have 6 very healthy chicks but all are different breeds (apart from 2 that are identical). I was wondering if anyone would be able to help me out with what breeds they are :)

    Only one I'm even willing to take a guess at is number three as it reminds me of the black australorp chicks I've been drooling over lately lol

    X3 on BantamLover21's guesses. That's about as good as can be done identifying them until they get older.

    Here are some photos of my chicks, they're not very good photos but I was wondering now that they're a bot older is it possilbe to definitely determine their breeds?
