Did you order only female CCLs?

:duc They do so love to keep their customer guessing! :rolleyes: 

 

Give it a few weeks and it should become a little easier as they feather out. Your SFH will get lots of white feathers to start with that will eventually molt out. I'm not familiar enough with the CL and BF to tell them apart.

Female CLs look like cleopatra with dark brown eyeliner and a clear defined triangle on the top of their head.
I don't know about BF

Chicks #3-5 could be Bielefelders.  Not sure about the other ones because males chicks should have a yellow spot on their head.  Since I don't see that on the other pics, I don't think they're Bielefelders.  A number of breeds come in that "chipmunk" pattern.

Are you having any luck figuring out who is who?

Did you put the color coding leg bands on each chick or did they come with them?  The chipmunk marked ones are the Bielefelders and CLL.  I tried counting the color or bands, but could not keep up, but think they are key to which are which.  The SFHs will not look chipmunk marked.  1 and 2 are definitely SFHs.  I have all three breeds, but mine were hatched by eggs sent through the mail by another person, and he did not mark they when hatched, so I have had a heck of a time figuring out which were the CLLs and which Bielefelders also.  Anyway, since they are all pullets, you will know soon with the CLL and Bielefelder because the CLL pullets will get their crests and the other two will not.  SFHs appear to have green/blue eyes also when chicks.  I tried to see if all the autosexing breeds had purple bands and the SFHs the white ones, or at least the five CLL had purple and the Bielefelders had the white bands, but I just could not keep count by scrolling up and done.  Nice chicks though and it won't take long to see the difference being that they are pullets.

On your SFH picks I don't believe 7 is one, it belongs in the autosexing breeds, but I have forgotten the number of the one I think is SFH in next group, let me go look (bg).  BRB.
