Would like some thoughts on breeds (Pic Heavy!)

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

We ordered chicks from McMurray Hatcherys. We ordered the Rainbow layer mix.  I am thinking I have a few Silver Spangled Hamburgs.  Any thoughts on  the others?

 

1.  The ones on top and middle left I think are the Silver Spangled Hamburgs.

2.  The one on the right in this one is my fave!!

4.  another one with the one I am thinking is the Silver Spangle Hamburg

I know we may not be able to figure it out now.  I would like an idea though :)

your favorite one is definitely a Silver laced wyandotte. i just hatched 6 of them! They grow up to be BEAUTIFUL birds and extremely calm chickens!

their favorite one is Definetly Not a silver laced because a silver laced is black

the black chick might be a black Austalorp and the others easter eggers (maybe)

I'm not an expert at all, but #3 looks like my "bonus" golden-penciled hamburg chick.  But, I'm just guessing.  I just love this forum.  I'm a gardener by profession, though and would do better with pictures of plants and weeds.

I HATCHED FROM MY CHICKENS WHICH ARE 100% SILVER LACED WYANDOTTES AND THAT "MIKE TYSON TATOO" FACE AND THE STRIPE DOWN THE MIDDLE     IS      A SILVER LACED WYANDOTTE CHICKEN AND I AM POSITIVE.

 

THAT IS PICTURE 2 CHICK ON THE MIDDLE LEFT.

 

Silver laced wyandotte chicks can be from a darker gray to a lighter gray (which is that chick) and it is probably a boy because i have found the lighter chicks have been mainly boys.

 

google silver laced wyandotte chicks and you will see that in fact I DO know exactly what i am talking about!

 

 

Have a wonderful time with your chicks.
