    These are all my chicks from a McMurray 'rarest of rare' assortment (technically their 'ornamental layer' sexed assortment, but I don't think I got any crested birds, and the rest are from the RoR). I have my suspicions about their breeds, but I'm new to this... so please, let me know what you think!

    Any help is appreciated. Feel free to skip around and only guess for a few.

    (Also, since I'm new, please let me know if I'm handing them incorrectly or if there seems to be anything wrong with them.)

    Thanks!

    2 & 3 could be lakenvelders, but they really look like anconas to me even though those aren't on the list.
    23 is a dark brahma.

    a faverolles would have five toes, i can't really tell from the pictures if any of the feather footed ones have five toes, so check for that.

    Thanks, zeely! I will definitely check their feet - maybe that would explain why they're so darn difficult to catch. ;)

    a bunch look like ee (ameracaunas) the chipmunk striped ones with the greenish legs and pea combs ... ones with other colored legs like yellow or diff combs ... probably are something else ...

    and 5 is a dom since its the only barred one of the three possibitlys on the list .. ( should have a rose/pea comb .. )

    your blk and yellow feathered footed ones could be langshans as well as cochins or faverolles .. so dont forget about them .. =) hope i helped out some .. lol

    checking their avalable breeds from that list see what was sold out .. and that could help narrow it down .. google images .. type in the breed of chicken you think it could be .. .. like .. red cap chicks ( the are very distinctive dont think you have any of them.. ) looks like mostly ameracaunas tho .. =) google images helped me narrow everything down for my chicks last year .. and ill be using it a lot .. next week when my chicks arive .. =)

    #5 looks like maybe a cuckoo maren. #7 Buff Brahma maybe. What kind of a comb does it have? Brahma have pea combs (i think) And I am sorry, but you don't have any salmon favorolles in there. They are very fluffy, have five toes, and have a little bit of black spots on their head and back. They look more like cochins to me. They might not be all EE's in my mix last time one I though was a ee was in fact a welsummer chick.

    Faverolles have 5 toes, so check your white feather footed babies for 5 toes, and those will be Faverolles. I have 1 Faverolles, and she is very very sweet, but she gets picked on b/c she's so docile.

    My guesses are:

    1, 10, 16, 21 EE
    7,12,15 gold laced wyandotte
    5 dominique
    11,13,14,19, 20 buff cochin
    18 campine?
    4,9 black cochin or black langshan
    2,3 sumatra?
    6,22 probably EE
    8 partridge cochin
    23 dark brahma, I suppose

    24 I'm not sure of

    Sorry, no Faverolles. Aside from having 5 toes, they also have muffs. I can see none of your chicks have them, so they must be cochins.

    5 may be a silver penciled rock, doesn't look like a typical barred chick to me the way the wing feathers are coming in.
    Pretty much any chick with green legs is gonna be an EE.
