Q: How will I know which chick is which breed when I receive my baby chicks?


The chicks do not come marked or tagged in any way. However, you can compare your chicks to the photos on our site to try to identify which is which. My Pet Chicken makes it easy for you by providing a Baby Chick Breed Identifier that includes photos of chicks by breed, listed alphabetically.

Many different breeds look similar as chicks, so in some cases, you may not be absolutely sure what you have until the birds get their mature plumage. It can be an exciting wait!
