    The ones with the greenish legs look like they might be EEs.

    i have a feeling i will be sending a few to new homes. But am excited to keep quite a few to grow up and see what they turn into.
    i am going to lone my flock of standard cochins this year hoping for at least half to be hens but not holding my breath.

    Wonderful assortment, I am hoping my surprise is half as good as yours. How many did you get in total?

    Some of your Cochins may be Brahmas. I got one of the Hatchery Surprises in too and had several Brahmas.

    The chipmunk/speckled head one's legs aren't green like my EE's were. Can't quite make out the comb, but the coloring/pattern makes me wonder if it's a Buttercup.

    I was also looking at the ducklings. Not a duck person, but they seem really brown for a Cayuga. All the ones I've seen have been dark sable to black. Maybe its a really bright light just making seem a lighter brown than expected. When I first looked at them I said 'really cute Khaki Campbells' then later I saw your caption. I am writing not to correct, but to learn!
