    It's going to be tough to tell those breeds apart as chicks. The Super Blues, Frost White Legbar, and the Snowy Easter Egger are all going to be white. The Columbian Wyandotte is also going to be a white chick. When you order Blue, there is always a chance for black or splash instead, so it's going to be tough to differentiate those chicks, since Black Copper Marans are also black as chicks and Lavender chicks are identical to Splash chicks.
    Once they are mostly feathered in, it will be much easier to distinguish which breeds are which.

    They will have to get some age on them before they can be identified
