    We got 3 chicks from a local farmer about 10 weeks ago. They were unknown sex and I'm not sure of breed either. Any help is greatly appreciated. Thanks!

    The first two look like Easter Eggers given the leg color and combs, and would vote girls so far . The third looks like a boy, might be an EE, or some sort of RIR / red bird cross with the yellow legs and single? comb.

    I agree with Kelsie on the sexes, no idea about breed though. Plus we don't get EE's over here which doesn't really help...
    Congrats anyway! The first pullet's a really pretty colour! :D

    Barnyard mixes. Probably selected to be good layers.

    All are mixed breed chickens. The first two could be Easter Eggers; the last one is some sort of production red cross. Last one appears to be a male, but they other two (for now) look like pullets. The first one in particular is very pretty!
