    I got these chicks as an assortment (brown egg layers). I figured rir, white rock, buff orp, etc. Some are feathering red(ish) and buff, some white, but a few are this crazy multicolored barring/pencilling. They are super friendly but i havent the faintest idea what they are.

    Also-i have a dominique/barred rock (no comb at 16 days to be sure) that is feathering slowly and almost appears to be frizzled. Do frizzled feather slowly? (I know i ordered two ee roos, not pitcured, but i can keep up to five so if its just a roo its no biggie).

    If you got them from a hatchery, which hatchery did you get your chicks from? That will help narrow down the breeds.

    Im hoping someone with a more discerning eye than mine can identify a few! I was hoping for at least one buff orp and some variety of red (i have a production red that is a hoot!) If they all turn out to be sex links/red stars/cinnamon queens, ill have 15 of those, 12 barred rocks, and one EE from that assortment (which will make me sad....i wanted a colorful chicken yard).

    You have mostly Red SLs, a couple of birds that could be either New Hampshires or Production Reds, and the chipmunk one is most likely a Wyandotte. Do you have a better picture of their backs and faces? That will help a lot, especially with the potential Wyandotte. I can't see it's comb.
