    56CA28F8-5BB1-4D1C-B660-1E44ED6D8C79.jpeg I’m the happy mother hen to 20 fluffbottoms who will be 4 weeks old in a couple of days. I purchased the Ornamental Layer baby chick assortment from Murray McMurray and have been trying to identify several of the breeds. So far I have identified for certain:
    1 buff laced Polish
    1 gold laced Polish
    4 silver laced Polish (two frizzles I think)
    1 speckled sussex
    1-2 Ameraucana/EE/OE (fluffy fat cheeks developing)
    2 red stars for sure, possibly 4


    2 black Langshans or black cochins (?) shoulder feathers have a lovely green shimmer in direct sunlight, heavily feathered hocks, legs and feet
    2 blue cochin looking chicks (started out true white down with gray) that are feathering out pure white, much smaller than the feather footed black ones.

    The rest are a bit of a mystery, all somewhat chipmunk-y (cream legbar/welsummer/wyandotte?) so any ideas are welcome.....because, well, it’s so much fun to guess!!!

    Can do, thanks. The dog loves the chickens and begs to see them daily. She finally figured out that if she sits very still they will approach her.
