    hi I got these colored easter chick from a co-worker, kids got them from gp's and they couldn't keep'em. I know the red one's a rir. and the orange is a orbie. all the others look like their the same thing just what? b or g? green and yellow i know are roos but none crow, any guess at their age.

    orange orbie? I say cause it has pink legs

    red rir

    They all look like roos to me. I'm guessing they're about 4 wks old judging by their feathering. They don't crow now but they will. Now as for what they are here's my best guess

    Blue - White Leghorn
    Purple - Golden Comet

    The orange one I'm not sure on.
