    Well, my hubby felt bad after accidentally leaving our dog out (who killed some of my hens! ) so he surprised me by bringing home 6 New chicks. Apparently he found them through a local add, and tried to pick out ones that looked different so that I could tell them apart... lol. Problem is, we aren't sure of the breeds, and the seller wasn't a lot of help.
    There are a couple that do look like the same breed, so I'm posting pics of the different ones. .. thanks for any help![​IMG][/IMG][/IMG]

    The second one looks like an Ameracauna or easter egger chick.

    I'm not seeing Easter egger in that second bird at all. Clean face, yellow legs, straight comb. It's a common color for lots of breeds. My best guess is it will be a red colored bird. The third could be an Australorp. Don't know on the others. If the seller wasn't very forthcoming, you can usually assume you have barnyard mix birds. You may never know what they are, but feel free to post again when they're around 4-6 weeks old. Should have good ideas about gender then, too.

    #2 looks like a brown leghorn or welsummer. Ypu will have to wait a little bit to tellt hough because it is a common chick color (not an easter egger though)
