    These were chicks donated to my classroom by the owner of a feed store. I am told they are pure and fairly rare breeds, but I'm not sure what they are. The only that's not pure is the banty 1 which is an intentional mix of something the owner is trying to create. The store did tell me they that they were pretty sure is Ayam Cemani 5. I've numbered the photos to make it easier. They are about 5 weeks old.

    The one without a number is turning out to be a frizzle. Is there a way to tell what that is?

    Thanks for the help!

    Not sure on 1, 2 may be a cream legbar cockerel, 3 is also a cockerel and might be a lavender orpington, 4 looks like it's something splash, maybe another orpington but I can't be sure, and is a cockerel, 5 could be an ayam cemani and is a cockerel, 6 I don't know, and the last one is some type of frizzle.

    Well, they were hatched in my classroom so I'm sure they couldn't tell before hatching. I just kept the ones we hatched.
    I had another that was similar to 6 that someone said looked like a blue laced red wyandotte. I'm not familiar with that breed so I wasn't sure if this looked like it too.

    I agree 2 and 3 are looking like they are possibly cockerels, what makes you think 4 and 5 are too? I'm still learning to identify.

    What does splash mean?

    Agreed and 6 looks to be a silver laced red Wyandotte.
    Splash is a randomly spotted chicken.

    Splash is a color that you get when a chicken gets two copies of the blue gene.

    For 5 week old they have very pronounced comb development.
    2,3,4, and 5. Are cockerels by looking at that.

    1. I guess you said this one was mixed.

    3. Blue Andalusian Cockerel
    4. Same cockerel?
    5. Ayam Cemani
    6. Blue Laced Red Wyandotte
    7. Ayam Frizzle
    I'm not totally sure on the Andalusian. Could be Orpington. Bit those are supposed to have white legs.....

    Only buff and white orpingtons are supposed to have white legs (cuckoo have white or mottled too). The leg color varies with the color variety. Lavender orpingtons have slate legs.
