    #1: ? EE (mainly b/c it has green legs)
    #2: ? Blue Andalusian
    #3: definitely a Speckled Sussex (I have these)
    #4: looks just like an EE chick I have. Are you sure there isn't a greenish tint to the legs? does not look like my Welsummers
    #5: no clue
    #6: ? Leghorn
    #7: ? Barred Rock
    #8: EE

    Sorry about that I should have been more specific. Rainbow chicks were a special from Meyer. They are supposed to be all pullets that lay various colored eggs - white, blue/green and brown - all in the same purchase of 25 chicks for $25. I couldn't turn it down.

    Everyone - thanks for your thoughts.

    My guesses were:

    1 - EE due to the green legs
    2 - was not sure
    3 - I was leaning toward Speckled Sussex
    4 - I was thinking Campine but really had no idea
    5 - Black Astrolorp (sp) b/c it looks like a vulture right now
    6 - White Leghorn
    7 - Barred Rock due to the yellow/black legs.
    8 - EE due to the green legs
