The breeds I think are;  12 str buff orpingtons,  12 barred rock roosters (or so they are supposed to be roosters), 4 black sex-link pullets, 4 str light brahmas, 4 str RIR, 4 str wyandottes (not sure of the color breed ), 2 silver somethings that looked like baby quail ( so pretty as they feather out ), 2 Lavender Orp, 3 bonus chicks he threw in at the end (2 Idk what they are w/red wing and head & white bellies ),and another was cream colored, is feathering out white with "green legs".  This last unknown chick is twice the size of the others.

 

We didn't know what breed we would like so we got an assortment.  The goal is the keep 8-10 hens and a rooster or 2. The others will find their way to the freezer.
