    Ok so I ordered 6 silkies a month ago three died I ordered females so they were 10 dollars each. They told me I could get a reshipment. I ordered 5 brown egg layers and 4 rare breed.

    I'm sure this is a buff laced polish thinking about naming her Buffy (as in fluffy, her color and as in the worm slayer)

    Possibly a black jersey giant or barred rock

    Buff Orpington?

    Delaware?

    I think a golden Campine

    Egyptian Fayoumis or Appenzeller Spitzhauben

    They are three days old and from mpc. Also there is a little poo stuck to their butts how do I get it off (note: this isn't my first time with chicks I've had over 30 but this is my first time with rare breeds and hatchery chicks)

    Here goes, I see:
    -buff laced Polish
    -Austrolorps (or Barred Rock, Dominique, black giant, they all look very similar as chicks but I'm leaning towards Aussie) all of the black/white/yellow chicks.
    -on the splash, I'm not seeing feathered feet and Cochins should have very heavily feathered legs. They should also have yellow legs and feet. That looks like a splash Andalusian to me, they come in blue/black/splash and lay white eggs.
    -B. Orps should have pink legs, in the picture they look yellow, but the color in the pic looks like it could be off. Maybe a red Sexlink?
    -looks like Delaware
    -golden Campine, or Buttercup if it doesn't have a straight comb.
    -I'm going with Spitz since all of the Fayoumi chicks I've seen have been brown as chicks, but sometimes hatcheries just end up with wonky colors. If it gets a crest, its an Appenzeller.

    Those are my guesses. Lots of chicks look very similar though, so there's a good chance I'm dead wrong :oops: They sure are cute, enjoy them!

    Are these feathers on her feet or are they something abnormal

    I think That Buttercup comb is going to look like a rose comb for a while and then it will be more obvious
