    Hi everyone, this is my first post and I just registered but have lurked here on and off since last year when I got my first set of babies. So much helpful info here!

    This time I got rare assorted breeds from Meyer, and I have a couple of guesses but mostly no idea, it's been fun guessing but they are just 4 days old so I think I have some waiting in store. I took pictures yesterday at 3 days old, any experts want to give an opinion? They are supposed to all be little ladies :)

    I think this one may be an Ancona?

    [​IMG]
    No idea on this one, but she is the smallest and has quickest wing feather growth.

    [​IMG]
    No idea

    [​IMG]
    Did not want to cooperate and stand but has grayish legs

    [​IMG]
    Possibly Campine? She has a leopard uneven kind of pattern.

    This is the biggest, she has a clear chipmunk type pattern...I think I remember my Easter Eggers having a similar look if I recall correctly.

    Meyer website says: Possible breeds include: Ancona, Easter Egger, Andalusian, Wyandotte, Dark Cornish, Delaware, Dominique, Jersey Giant, Brahma, Partridge Rock, Light Brown Leghorn, Hamburg, Sussex, German Spitzhauben Appenzeller, Buckeye, Sumatra, Cochin, Polish, Marans, Campine, Lakenvelder, Faverolles, Buttercup, Welsummer, Exchequer Leghorn, Sultan, Penedesenca, Ameraucana, Blue and Lavender Orpington, and others as they are added to our selection.

    Looks like you got: Ancona, Black Sumatra, possibly second Ancona?, Spitzhauben, either Buttercup or Campine (I would have to see the comb), and a Partridge Rock. Lucky you! You got some of my very favorite breeds! [​IMG] [​IMG]

    On second thought, I think the third cutie is an Exchequer Leghorn. [​IMG]

    Oh my goodness, I forgot to say [​IMG]! We're so glad you joined our community!

    I LOVE Meyer so much, and in fact, I'm probably one of their biggest advocates. [​IMG] I can't begin tell you how much I adore Spitzhaubens, Buttercups, Campines, and Sumatras! [​IMG] You're sure to become infatuated with them.
