    Rather than sortin' through google's billions of photos for those similar to my own, I figured askin' y'all would be far easier, and more fun.

    Guesses/opinions are welcome/appreciated.
    I'd also like to know your thoughts on their current development, when compared to other 17-18 day old chicks ...

    That was a lot of uploading, which meant a lot of downloading for you ... sorry ... I appreciate you for takin' the time to look 'em over.

    #1 is a Buff Brahma; #2 is Golden Lakenverder; # 3 ca n be any black mottled breed ( I think is Ancona, but is way to early to tell for sure); # 4#5 and # 6 are Sicilian Buthercups

    Thank you for your help (and, now, I'm gonna ask a bit more ~'-)

    Compared to others of the breeds you believe these to be, how developed do they appear for 17-18 day old chicks?

    They look just right- very healthy.

    with 100 pullets you are more than likely going to get at least 3 cockerals. in 1 more month you will be able to tell by the comb and wing feathers. small comb long wing feathers = pullet. bigger comb shorter wing feathers=cockeral.

    Good to hear ~ I will be posting better pictures, which I'll take today if time permits (their '21st day after birth'day ~'-)

    Feared that possibility; hoped, for now, to have all females. Based upon statistical probability, there's 3/4 of 1% chance I'll have to revise my plan ~'-)

    That'd be a bit bad, not that I've anything specific against the breed ... already suspecting I've more than one bird that ain't gonna lay eggs.

    But, the bird is rumpless (missing the tail, and associated part of it's spine).

    Also, as it is clearly not a snake (anaconda) I think I meant to type araucana rumpless

    The toes, and leg color looks right for *some* images found (most esp. the blue).

    Araucanas have Pea comb- this baby has single comb. Is it missing the meat part of the tail or only the feathers? Rumplessnes can happen in any breed some times. It is very possible it will grow tail.
