    I ordered McMurray Hatchery's "Egg and Meat Combo" which consisted of 15 Cornish Xs and Cornish Rocks, and 10 egg layers. I have tried to browse the hatchery catalog to identify my hens, but am too new to accomplish this.

    Can you help me identify?

    Chick # 1-2-3 (all same)

    Chicks #5-6 (most friendly and pretty little birds)
    [​IMG]
    and again #5-6

    Chick #7 RIR maybe??

    Chick #8 & 9 (Buff Orps, I'm guessing)

    And finally #10

    I have some new birds that I got from my local feed store and I bought some Araucanas or this is what they called them and some buff orpingtons. Also last year bought barred rocks. The first pics look just like my Araucanas, and the darker yellow ones look like my buffs and the black one with the big beak looks like the barred rock. I really don't know about the others.

    Here are my guesses, for what they're worth!

    1, 2 & 3. Look like brown leghorns to me - looks like yellow legs. What kind of comb do they have?

    4. Don't know.

    5 & 6. Don't know - very pretty blue peeps!

    7. Looks like RIR to me.

    8 & 9. To me it seems in the photos that one has yellow legs and the other has white legs. I would think the white-legged one with the more-feathered wings might be a Buff Orp pullet. The other chick looks to have yellow legs and may be meat roo.

    10. Barred Rock.

    11. Don't know.

    Good luck with your cute fluffs!

    Quote:1, 2 & 3 don't have combs yet. So may have to wait and see, eh?
    #8 & 9, you're right, their legs are a diff color. I hope that isn't a roo or McMurray owes me another hen.
    &#10 that's 2 votes for Barred Rock -- must be!
    I would really like to know what the little blue ones are, they are my faves and really seem to be less skiddish and curious.

    Thanks so much for the replies. My guesses on a couple were really wrong.
    Anyone else want to try on the first set and the last one?
