Well, I am hoping some are.  Definitely got at least one Olive Egger.  Tell me what you think!

 

 

 

Green legs!

It looks like you have a mix of blue and splash. Because of the effect of the blue gene on black, blue chicks will have leg color lighter than a black chick, and they may look willow. They certainly look like Orp chicks.

Home of the world's cutest dachshund, one crazy blue heeler, two cats,
              one fat pony, and many (but not too many!) chickens

              Can anyone tell me, how many are too many chickens?

You're the second person to say blue and splash, no black.  I'm OK with that!
