I would love to know if anyone out there can give their best guess on what breed of chickens I have based on the list of rare chicken breeds that I attached in the pictures.
I have a mixed variety of rare breed chicks I purchased through Tractor Supply and would like a better idea of what I may have.
Thanks!
I’ve added a picture showing list of chicken breeds they can be and a couple of pictures offering different angles on the chicks in question.
The yellow chicks in the first couple pics have feathered feet… if that helps.

The yellow chicks look like Salmon Faverolles. I don’t see in your photos a fifth toe, they should have these. Looks like they have pea combs, which would be appropriate.😊

The other chicks are harder to identify. They could very well be some of the new “Eggers“ that many hatcheries are producing.
The chipmunk striped one could also be many different breeds.
Will be easier to tell once they feather out.
You can likely look forward to some colorful eggs!😊

I suspect you may have Wyandotte babies in there too… I’ve bred Wyandottes myself and the babies look very similar to some of yours… but would definitely be worth posting more photos as they start to feather out as they change colours so dramatically 🤣

Thank you for the replies and insight… As for the yellow chicks I am thinking maybe Light Brahmas?… The rest I am not sure. I will add more pictures of them in a couple weeks once they are all feathered and see if that helps lock down what they may be.
I guess this is part of the fun of buying them this way….
