    So all of these chicks came from an assorted rare-breed chicken package from McMurray hatchery. The first 2 chicks have beards (hard to tell in picture) any guesses?

    The first one looks either like an Easter Egger or ameraucana. The second one looks like a buff Orpington and the last one looks like a barred rock.
    I had each of those breeds in my last order and they looked almost identical to yours.

    First bird looks like an Easter Egger.

    Second bird, I can't see that well. does it have feathered legs or extra toes, and white skin? If so, Faverolles. If not.....

    Last bird is a barred something. From the rare breed assortment it shouldn't be a Rock, it should be either a Marans or a Dominique. Straight comb and white/pink skin is cuckoo Marans. yellow skin and rose comb is Dominique.

    It does have feathers legs! I'll go count the toes :)
    I'll check the other ones to see if they are in stock at the hatchery. Thank you!
