Pretty sure Tractor Supply just told me what I wanted to hear so I would buy them. I wasn't going to, but all these guys just stole my heart and I had to get them!

Chick #1 (Light red with darker red stripes on back)

Chick #2 (Creamy red with zebra-striped wingtips?)

Chick #3 (Same as Chick #2, but with white wingtips)

Chick #4 (All white)

Chick #5 (Almost all black, yellow vent and facial markings, dark legs with lighter feet)

Chick #6 (Same as Chick #5, but with less prominent facial markings and white wingtips)

So can anyone help? I'm pretty new to raising and identifying chicks so many answers would be good so I can make sure!

Red chipmunks are sex-link
I'm guessing the white may be a longhorn
and the black australop

#2 could be a New Hampshire. They do start out yellowish and get that wing type, but youll have to wait a bit for her to feather out more. I've had three NH pullets and they look just like that, same color, same wing striations at first.


mommathea, you cracked me up a bit when you said:

The image of a Longhorn chicken is rather unsettling! I know you meant Leghorn, though.
