    Hey everyone! so we just got 9 new chicks from my pet chicken yesterday! I got the hatch day mystery chicks so I need some help figuring out what they are! Today they are only 2 days old so I hope you all can help me!

    First up-Barbosa and Black Beard. We THINK they are some sort of cochin-they are much smaller than the other chicks

    Next up is Bertha-she's much bigger than the rest

    Here are some silkies (there names are to be decided!)

    last, but not least the red girls-they are a light red with dark red markings and have little eyeliner flecks behind there eyes (one is name Cleopatra)

    Any help would be greatly appreciated! We have a full grown flock right now and I got baby fever so I figured why not? I love them so already!

    Thank you! I have experience with RIR and silkies but not the rest. Are those breeds friendly? I have silkies (that I think are crossed possibly) that I got much older and were not hand raised at all and seem to really not like humans. They aren't aggressive but not inquisitive like my buff orpington, dominiques, or RIR. Even my turkeys seem to enjoy human company more lol!
