I just got the surprise box from cackle hatchery. I got 51 chicks, a duckling and a turkey poult. I won't post all the chicks but I'd love opinions on some of them. The numbers and my guesses are below the pics. Thanks in advance

#1 I have several like this. Some with much more of the gray

#2 Welsummer or brown leghorn

#3 smaller than the first two so a bantam EE

#4 barred rock or black sex link roo

#5 austrolorp or black giant

#6 has puffy cheeks EE

#7 silver laced wyandotte

#8

#9 RIR

They're so cute!!!

I'm going to guess this one as growing up to be pure white. My White Giant was blue and white as a chick and grew up to be pure white.


I agree, Welsummer, Leghorn or some other partridge patterned chicken.


Could be an EE, but it also resembles my Silver Duckwing OEGB chick in some ways, so it could be a partridge pattern when it grows up.


Barred Rock, Cuckoo Maran, or something similar, I agree. The dark leg skin makes me think it could be a more rare breed.


Does it have feathered legs or not? It looks like it could be some kind of mottled, barred, or black cochin if so.


EE is a good guess, especially if the leg skin is dark.


Silver Laced Wyandotte, I agree.


Gold Laced Wyandotte if standard and Golden Sebright if bantam?


RIR most likely, could be a Red Leghorn.

All of these are clean legged. I have one bantam colored like #5 that has feathered legs I'm assuming is a cochin. #6's legs aren't very dark. #8 is a bantam I believe. I have all sorts of solid yellow chicks. I'll be waiting until more adult feathering comes in on those. My polish were easy to pick out so I didn't post any of their pics.
