    I got new mystery chicks because I'm crazy. I would to love peoples opinions about what breeds they are! They are absolutely adorable and I couldn't resist :love

    This one was in the assorted Tetra tub and was one of the only two with poof faces. I'm pretty positive it's not a tetra. 0427180401e.jpg
    This one was the other poof face in the tetra tub!

    This one was in the assorted bantam tub and was the only black one.

    This one has the prettiest colors! It was in the assorted bantam tub as well.

    And this one is the smallest and was in the assorted bantam tub. The majority of the chicks in the tub looked like this one excluding about 5 which had fuzzy feet.

    Any opinions are greatly appreciated! Thank you!

    That's just a semi educated guess. So many breeds can look simular at that age it's sometimes hard to nail them down with certainty.

    agree with @The Moonshiner except I think the second to last one is a dark brahma.

    Knowing comb type would help with that.

    #4. Does the chick have a more reddish hue, or more silver? Also, what comb type? Could be a Partridge Cochin, Silver Penciled Cochin, or Dark Brahma, depending on these two questions.
