    I posted some of my pic's yesterday..Here are some close-up shots of the girls [​IMG] -- Any ideas what kinds they might be? This was a McMurray rainbow egg layer assortment--it's making me crazy trying to figure out what they are [​IMG] -- I think we have some EE's, chipmunk-y looking--and very cute [​IMG] -- but these are stumping me [​IMG]!!

    Here's the first one...kind of a gray-ish cast to the down--hopefully the picture shows it good enough
    [​IMG]
    Here she is in with the rest of the chicks for contrast

    I'm pretty sure this one is an EE?
    [​IMG]
    This one has feather-y legs and a really "fluffy" appearance--especially around the head--we have two of these---
    [​IMG]
    This one I thought might be a red comet or a RIR -- not so sure now with the feathers that are coming in --they are spotted--??
    [​IMG]
    no guesses on this one [​IMG] -- have a few--some have more black than this little one...
    [​IMG]

    Here's another with some together to show the contrast in colors [​IMG] -- Thanks for your help!--Looking forward to figuring out what we have [​IMG]!

    The black one looks like my Black Australorps.

    Now, I'm feeling really disappointed. LOL I ordered that same assortment from MM and ended up with 22 of the same breed. No EE, either. boo hiss.

    Your assortment looks fantastic!

    Quote:Thanks [​IMG]! I just posted on your thread [​IMG] -- Wow, I would have been really disappointed if they had sent all yellow chicks!! I know a lot of breeds start out that way , but man..it stinks when you are hoping for an "assortment"! We just got ours on Sunday am (they called at the PO while I was at church [​IMG]!) I don't know if I'll order again from McMurray...not real thrilled with their "customer service" -- frustrating [​IMG] Anyways--thanks for the suggestions! Hope your girls do well [​IMG]!

    Thanks [​IMG] -- With the hubby thing.....if you add them in groups of 2 or 3, they really don't notice [​IMG] -- I even threw in a duck pair a few years back..took my hubby a full 2 weeks to realize that there were other SPECIES in my clutch [​IMG]!! he he he [​IMG]
