When my Guy finally gave the okay on chickens, I didn't have a big choice though now I am glad. That was the cutest darn box of chicks ever! All Alive. Week old now. There were 25 straight run assorted, 6 Americana/Arucana pullets and one free exotic. If you know any of these, that would be great~
I call these the Chipmunks. Wondering if they may be the Ameruacana. McMurray's are a mix, not for show. I have never had this breed and the photo on the hatchery website shows that they can look very different as chicks so they may be one of the others. Thought I had a better shot - I could retake these in smaller groups. All have stripes on their backs and barred wings.
This cutie has been dubbed Babs. Keeping it even if a roo. I think it is a White Polish?
Actually took this photo at the end when I realized these two looked alike.
One of these is not like the others, one of these does not belong! I think there is another that looks like that one.
Two that are not quite white. I see that their wing colors are different now.
See "penguins" next picture. The one in front should have been with those with the black legs and black beaks. The other two look similar but more mottled and have yellow beaks and legs.
Calling these my penguins. Sooooo cute and very friendly.
Realized these didn't look alike taking the pic. see bottom photo where I paired the one on the right correctly. Otherwise, no chick in here twice!
This little one is colored differently, almost silvery. I put the toilet paper roll in for size comparison.
Reddish with barred wings and a few dark spots on head.
My little vultures! Black turkens I think. They have attitude.
White chicks, very different sizes not fully apparent. One seems to be a meat bird, largest chick I have and almost lumbers.
I realized these were mismatched taking the photo. The only chick I took a second picture of is above with its look alike.
