    I got the fancy feathered flock pullets. I figured most of them out but am unsure about these. Thanks in advance

    Hoping this is a Sumatra

    whew, tough call, but here are my guesses based on what Meyer offers in that category:

    chick 1: Golden Lakenvelder
    chick2: Exchequer Leghorn or Black Sumatra
    chick 3: Easter Egger (erroneously listed as Ameracauna by the hatchery)
    chick 4: Hamburg
    chick 5: ??
    Chick 6: Barnevelder/Chantecler

    They are adorable! The black and white one I love!!!!

    I just got mine from Meyers a week ago. How did yours ship? I lost my one cochin partridge roo and one partridge rocks. But the ones that all made it are STRONG and happy!

    Sadly I can not help you out- none of yours look like my RIRs, Rocks or my Polish....

    Here goes--I am really not sure on some of these, but to my eye, this is my best guesses--super cuties whatever they may be [​IMG]
    1-Gold Lakenvelder or Golden Spangled Hamburg--What kind of comb does she have?
    2-Sumatra
    3-EE if it has puffy cheeks, otherwise? Buttercup or Chantecler maybe, what type of comb does this one have?
    4-Exchequer Leghorn
    5-Silver Lakenvelder or Columbin Wyandotte
    6-BLR Wyandotte (I think I see a rose comb)

    Please do updates as they grow--its really helpful to pair the chicks with what they turn out to be!

    Oh I agree- my poor girls got here last week during the heat wave! I am 100% satisfied with Meyers- they were more than kind to me and at this time of the year has an amazing selection!

    I just figure it was the weak ones- kind of act of nature!
