    So I ordered a few variety packs and am unsure of the exact breeds of a few of my chicks, hopefully someone will be able to help me!?

    I ordered 2 feather footed:

    The one to the far right....? I have two of these, they are still very fluffy whilst the others have almost lost all of their baby fluff by now...

    And a few others I am unsure of:

    Tiger Chicken is her name..

    The closest? Similar to tiger chicken, but smaller and without the facial markings

    Also...is it strange that one of my Polish chicks has 5 toes, while the other polish has 4? The thumb is forked on both sides...

    Thanks for any help! I am a newbie so sorry if I do anything wrong in this process!!

    Hello,
    In the first picture it looks like you have a barred rock, turken(naked neck), some sort of cochin and a polish.
    Tiger chicken looks like an Easter Egger, and i'm not sure about the other chicks [​IMG]
    cute chicks you have there [​IMG]

    Aww thanks! And I have 4 silkies on the way as well as a mille fluer! OKay yea it was the cochin I was unsure of, that was what my guess would be too... and that would be awesome if tiger chicken is an easter egger! Thanks for the help! [​IMG]

    i think the fluffy feather footed one is a partridge cochin.... one of those is really agressive towards the other chicks.... hopefully she will grow out of it (and is a she and not a he!?)

    Do you have any side shots of your Tiger chicken? I don't think it is an EE. There are many breeds that are that color. Normally EE have green(willow I think it is called) legs a pea comb (but not always) and puffy cheeks. I see none of these on your chick.

    Quote:Also looks a lot like my Welsummer chicks, I've read that they and brown leghorns look very similar as chicks.

    Pic #4 looks just like my partridge rock girls. She will be VERY pretty!

    No idea on the others. Have fun guessing!
