I could not resist these little boogers, so I picked up 7 little fuzzies. Can anyone help me figure out what they are?

 

I am wondering aboyt the one eating from the feeder, it is grey all over with a white underbelly and face, feathered feet.

The one behind it as well I have two of. They are mostly black with gold on the face and a white underbelly, feathered feet.

 

 

I believe these are buff brahmas I have three of these.

 

This small one in the very front has clean legs.

The silvery one at the food dish is a light brahma and the others you are correct in saying buff brahma.  If they develop vulture hocks they are Mille Fleurs, very similar coloration as babies.

 

Not sure about the clean leg chick, I know feather legged better :)  it's a cutie though.  Maybe a old English game of some sort?  D'Anvers possible?

I figured the fleurs might be a little smaller like the old English or Danvers but with feathered legs. I am praying they are brahmas. Any ideas in the two really dark chicks with dark gold striped faces? If that little one is a danver I will be in heaven! I have been wanting some of those haha.

You are right in that Mille's would probably be a bit smaller, but with your hand for size reference..(you could have small hands).  I've had bantam buff brahma and mille's together and it was nearly impossible to tell them apart.  I kept having to look for vulture hocks.  Mille chicks actually are pretty large compared to OEG. 

 

The dark ones look like a cochin, I'm not really up on the cochin colors but Privett supplies TSC with their chicks so you can always check and see which cochins they carry and narrow it down.  It's possibly a silver or gold laced but I'm not sure.  I know they aren't barred because those have a head dot of yellow.

This is a week old Mille chick, the vulture hocks are off the "knee" area, those crazy little feathers.

 

Your little guy looks like it might be a golden seabright..I'm browsing chick images on ideal
