Mystery chick help

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Hello! We got our first batch of chicks this morning from my pet chicken. Figuring out who is who has been more challenging than I imagined! I am really curious about these two little chicks we have that I think are some of the mystery chicks we ordered. They are roughly half the size of the others. Any help would be much appreciated! Thanks!

The first smaller chickie:


This one is so cute! Neither have feathers on their legs, as I first thought maybe this one was a silkie:



Happy in their brooder:


And this was what we ordered (no Sicilian buttercup or blue Easter egger- they were a poor hatch so we took two salmon favorelles instead. Which I'm so happy with!!)


Thanks again!!

Hi there!

I can't answer your question but I do have one for you.

 

When you received your order did they include maybe a list with a description as to who was what?

 

Welcome to BYC!

Hi! Thanks for the reply. They did not include any kind of a list. I was on their site for awhile trying to figure it out from their chick pictures as well. Thanks for the welcome!!

Hi- thanks for the reply! They didn't include any information on the chicks to help identify them. I've been on their site for awhile trying to figure it out from their chick pictures. Thanks for the welcome!big_smile.png

The second one is some kind of Crested Polish. The first one may be a Bantam of some kind, I'm not sure what kind.
