    Number one is a small white REALLY fluffy cutie I don't know breed or gender, was a donated egg from a local:

    Number two I thought was from Cynn's eggs but now I'm not sure since I was wrong on the others! It's black and white and real sweet:

    I'm no expert but here's my guess on it:

    #1: Cochin

    #2: Silver Sebright?

    #3: Some kind of cochin

    #4: Buff Orp

    #5: Welsummer?

    #6: Some kind of cochin

    #3, 4, & 6 look like female buff brahmas to me.

    #1 is a cochin and female

    Butterscotch looks like she might be part d'uccle, which would explain her quiet & sweet personallity.

    #2 looks like a boy? splash something, not sure on the breed.

    #5 is a boy?, not sure on the breed.

    Ok, I give it a try:

    #1 - simple, Cochin hen
    #2 - looks like it will grow up to be poor columbian in colour, the legs look green so I would say Easter egger
    #3 - buff brahma
    #4 - hm, the fluffy cheeks throw me off a bit, other wise I would say buff cochin but I think it may have some D'uccle blood in it
    #5 - I am guessing some type of game influence, maybe a Kraienkoppe? I haven't seen those as chicks yet tho, so I cannot say for certain.
    #6 - has buff brahma qualities, but the green legs don't fit and I think I see a Single comb? Maybe EEx Brahma

    Thanks, I really do appreciate you're taking the time, I know there are a lot of us out there who know nothing about the breeds and genders and need the expertise of those who know more!
