Last week I received a double Cackle Hatchery Surprise Package of 104 chicks and poults. I've watched the many videos Cackle posted on youtube that showcase each breed. I don't think that helped with a lot of them, since they do look alike, with slight variations that are not summarized anywhere in detail. Here are some of the chicks I have that are thriving! I only know what a few of them are.
1 Some that look like this have a little more or less gray, and some have almost striped wings.
2 A little smaller, lighter in color
3 Maybe Polish, but not as well-defined head puff
4 I believe this is a White Polish, with a very well-defined puff.
5 This one has a pronounced breast, it's not just a huge crop. This one really puzzles me.
6. I have about a dozen of these
7. From the cheeks and beard, I think this is an EE
8. Same for this one, although the head is a lot puffier than #7 (Shall I call it Trump?) There are other breeds that have puffs and beards but I don't think Cackle sells those.
9 I have one of these. Spangled Hamburg?
10 The turkey poult was obviously not a chick. Looks to me like Mr Burns! I'll have to call another chick Smithers.
Any suggestions and advice is appreciated!
