    Back of Chick 1, and Chick 3--looks like Barred Rock chick but with white chest.

    Chick 4 All Black, including dark slate legs and feet with black wash.

    Chick 5

    Chick 6 on the left--feathered legs, but does not appear to be a Cochin. Langsham maybe? Always stood tall.

    Chick 7 little white one.

    All of these have straight combs.
    Thanks for any guesses!

    Okay...here are my guesses:

    Chick 1: not sure on this one...Partridge something...head is too rust for Partridge Rock, but that was my first guess

    Chick 2: Looks to be a Speckled Sussex...chipmunk chick pattern with white spots coming in, beige/pink legs....if legs were yellow, I'd guess Welsummer

    Chick 3: I think is still a Barred Rock...white chest will disappear...it appears to have the black wash on the front of the legs, so I don't think it is a Black Marans

    Chick 4: Black Star female, pretty sure

    Chick 5: Gold Star/Red Star/Red Sexlink,etc. female, pretty sure

    Chick 6: Not familiar with that breed, no guess

    Chick 7: White Rock

    Thank you for your input! I hadn't even thought of Speckled Sussex or White Rock--but they both make sense. The white chicks just didn't look like Leghorns to me, but I couldn't think of what else they might be. I agree totally on the sex-linked chicks. I've never had them before, but they seem to fit the descriptions quite well.
