    We got a box of babies yesterday morning from My Pet Chicken. We got 6 Black Australorps, 2 Rhode Island Reds, and 2 assorted rare pullets. I think I know what breeds the 2 mysteries are, but can anyone confirm?

    I believe this is a Blue Laced Red Wyandotte, which is great because I have 3 SLW already, so she will have friends.

    And this one I am guessing is a Silver Spangled Hamburg. She is super tiny, but the assortment does not include bantams! I'm hoping she will get along great with my D'uccles.

    Yep. You got 'em right! I'm not 100% sure on the second one, but there's a good chance that's what he is. Check what breeds my pet chicken sells.

    You got the Wyandotte! :thumbsup However, pretty sure the last is a Silver Spangled Appenzeller Spitzhauben, due to pronounced head poof (indicating future crest). :love

    Well, whatever the second chick was, we will never know for sure. We lost her suddenly this evening. :'(

    I'm not sure what happened, but maybe her tiny size was not an indication of a smaller breed afterall.
