    I think the little black one is a black Old English Game Bantam? If you go to Ideal Poultry they have good pictures/drawings of baby chick breeds and colors.

    All of the clean legged chicks look like OEGBs. My TSC had EEs in the assorted bantam bin and they all had beards and muffs. I picked up a blue OEGB that looks just like yours :) If they had blue, black and splash babies available in the bin, that could explain your little black chick as well. They're super cute!

    Update: Alright pictures for this week as promised. I think I have one roo so far. I'm not sure about the others. I know its still early (3 weeks) but if you want to guess I would really appreciate your input.
    Mohawk (chick 1): Pretty sure this will be a roo based on his feathers and his red comb that is coming in.

    Amelia (chick 2): Hopefully a pullet OEGB.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]
    Sprinkles (chick 3): ??? I have no Idea!!!!! He/She has such a unique comb. The comb is very flat, almost none existent but his/her beak is really big (it makes him/her look kinda like a vulture).

    Mess: I want to say this one may be a pullet but he/she has big legs.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Meek (chick 5): I love the black feathered feet makes he/she look like he/she has boots on.

    The last one looks kinda like my Mille Fleur D'Uccle roo I had from McMurray. Google images & see what you think.
