    chickies are a little older now, so they might be easier to id (or not!). [​IMG]

    #1 - black cochin?

    #2 - porcelain?

    On the first one, it might be a cochin cross, but cochins should have yellow legs. #4 guessing EE, #9 white leghorn. These are just guesses....

    *squeals* They are adorable!! [​IMG]

    #1 might be a black cochin, but all the white feathers coming in might suggest a mottled cochin...

    I think #4 & #5 are Easter Eggers due to the slate colored legs...

    #3 IS a fuzzball! [​IMG] Maybe it's a cockeral since it's so slow at feathering (especially the tail)?

    Well, I'm not much help but I think they're all gorgeous!!

    Maybe your fuzz ball is a week younger than the rest and not a bantam!!! Some of your chicks look like they are pushing 3 weeks.

    really? this is the day i got them in the mail. i thought they were all supposed to be hatchlings.

    btw, he's the biggest one. i just assumed maybe he was a breed that didn't get feathers as soon.

    Number 9 looks like my red pyle old english pullets, they looked almost completly white except you can notice a slightly darker shade on the neck and head, she is 7 weeks old now and you really just start to notice.

    HERE ARE MY GUESSES

    #1 Does look like a Mottled Cochin bantam chick

    #2 not sure

    #3 looks like a Golden Sebright

    #4 & 5 I guess easter egger's because of the legs.

    # 6 ?

    #7 kind of looks like my buff Japanese

    # 8 & 9 are probably your red pyle!

    Good luck figuring them out! They sure are cute.

    perfect! i was wondering if 6 & 7 were my blue wheatens, but i couldn't find any chick pictures at this age to compare, only hatchlings.

    i figured the last guy was one of my red pyles, but i'm glad someone(s) agrees!

    thanks, everyone.
