    I got some brown eggs a while back from an Amish wanting to know if we could hatch them out for him. He got them from another Amish and thought they were RIR's. They are probably mixed but thought maybe someone had a clue as to what they might be.

    Here is a picture of the whole group so far that we have from his eggs. Some of the lighter ones have two darker reddish marks down their backs.

    These ones are the main ones we were wondering about. Especially the little brown chipmunk looking one. Everyone thinks it is cute.

    I was looking through pictures and came across some Araucana chicks that looked similar. Could that be what they are?

    I only see one that looks RIR-ish.......i think you will need to post pics when they get some feathers.

    Not sure how long we will be keeping them before the Amish picks them up. I'll try to take more pictures before he takes them. Might not be till another week or two.

    As usual, I am probably wrong, but since he thought they were RIR I am guessing the little light ones are sex link. Boys. But maybe girls on the ones with darker red stripes.

    they ( the 2 stripey's) sure look like EE's/araucauna's/Ameraucana's to me. Especially the darker of the 2 ~ spittin image of my little skunky mutt! {;>)=

    Thanks for the replies. I was looking at some baby chick pictures last night and thought they looked like the ones everyone said. Only went through some pictures though since there are just to many breeds. Might see if I can trade some of my bigger chicks for them. Everyone thinks they are cute and we can't stop picking them up. Only thing bad though is that on the 27th I'm receiving a rare variety assortment of chicks. Maybe next year I'll order some that look similar. I went over to someones house yesterday and they had so many breeds of chickens/ducks/geese/pigeons that I felt like I was at a bird farm. She uses her bantams to hatch out her eggs instead of incubating them.
