    I hatched 4 mystery chicks 16 weeks ago and posted pics of them on here. Now that they're a bit bigger and more distinctive, was hoping someone might be able to help me identify three of them. I know one is a golden campine but I'm not too sure about the rest....

    A breed was suggested for this little blondie but I can't remember what it was. Sounded like sultana something

    Red Hampshire? Was suggested for this one

    This one is jet black, black comb, black legs, everything but has beautiful shimmery green and purple feathers on her back.

    Thanks in advance for any help in identifying them.

    #1 is a Wheaten Sulmtaler.
    #2 is a very nice New Hampshire, not from hatchery stock.
    #3 could be an Ayam Cemani.
    Whoever bred those birds is doing a fantastic job!

    Thank you v much. Will google those now. Sulmtaler was what I could remember - sounds like sultana!!
    Considering these eggs were all donated to a school project, someone has been incredibly generous. i feel v lucky to be able to raise them

    Was examining my little black chicken today and noticed her eyes aren't black, they are brown. Does this make her less likely to to be an Ayam Cemani?
