    We got these 3-week old chicks last week but are unsure of what breeds they are. Any ideas?

    I had two just like the bottom photo.

    At 5 mos one is a Cubalaya red wheaten type, the other is a red Saipan.

    I want to post some pics and get some ideas on my hatchery fowl.

    hope this helps, Shortybull

    Where were they sourced from? Can you get a clear shot of the comb area of each bird or describe the type of comb each looks to develop?

    I'm not sure what the first chick is, but I'm thinking that the second chick is a Red Sex-link.

    The first one looks like a possible Sicillian Buttercup or Campine. Could you post a photo of its comb? It may also be an Easter Egger. The second chick looks like some sort of "Production Red" or Red Sex-LInk.
