    I ordered 15 chicks from MPC/Meyer and 5 were mystery chicks.
    This is mystery chick one. They are just over a month. It was yellow with black stripes when born.

    I think they are both roosters too, but I think the top one is a silver spangled hamburg and the bottom one is a Cochin, but not so sure about the bottom one.

    First bird is a Silver Spangled Hamburg with the wrong comb tpe. Second bird is either a Mottled Cochin or a Black Cochin (which has a few white feathers at this point). Both are definitely cockerels.

    Both are roosters. #1 looks like a Silver Spangled Hamburg, and #2 looks like a Mottled Cochin.
