Breeds? 2 week old chicks

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

Hi!  I have 17 chicks that are a little over 2 weeks old.  I bought McMurray's ornamental layer collection and I have no idea what some of them are.  Any help would be much appreciated!

 

Chick 1:

I have several that look like chipmunks, but this one has greenish blue legs and her feathers are coming in a little more gold/brown.

 

Chick 2:

Buttercup?  The others seem to have a noticeable comb but hers is just a flat area.

 

Chick 3:

I have 2 of these... dark legs, single comb.

 

Chick 4:

I have 3 of these.  Single comb, yellow legs. 

 

Chick 5:

Millie is the black one in front.  No visible comb, yellow legs tinted with black.  She does have a white patch on top of her head.

 

Chick 6:

Sweetpea is very docile and friendly.  She likes to sit on my lap :) She has a single comb, and all black feathers coming in.

 

Chick 7:

Coco is the one in front.  She has a very dark chocolate brown head, dark legs and a single comb.

They are adorable!  Do all of your EEs have dark legs?

 Thank you. Yours are too! 
 My 16 easter egger chicks have black, gray, slate, green, yellow, yellow with black.... one even has white legs! They are a mixed bag of nuts for sure.

This one is Polly, quite a bit larger than the other chicks, clean yellow legs, cream/white feathers.  She is starting to get darker feathers coming in around her neck.  She's very curious and loves to perch

I'm almost positive this baby is a Salmon Faverolle... do the black feathers mean Roo?

And next is Penny.  She is all creamy yellow with orange speckles on her head


Any thoughts?
