    I have 8 chicks (1 and 2 days old).

    Daddy is : Cream Legbar (NOT crested)

    Momma's are : Buff Orpington, Barnevelder, Easter Egger (gold head, brown/black body, with beard muffs, peacomb)

    What i know:
    at least 3 are Buff Orpingtons (found the marked shells)
    at least 1 is Barnevelder (found the marked shell)
    MYSTERY- 2 could be either BO or Barnevelder
    only 2 are EE (only set 3 blue eggs and one didnt hatch)

    My guesses are:
    two yellows are BO- maybe boys?
    1 orange one ...BO- maybe girl?
    light chipmunk twins are EE? one has puffy cheeks...???? or maybe 1st one is BO ??
    Dark ones-the freckled dark one...i thought EE?? but that would mean one light chipmunk must be BO?? (cant have 3 EE)
    2 dark twins with single comb ..-- Barnevelders ?

    I'd love some help!!!!

    PICS IN ORDER - yellows, orange, 2 light chipmunk, 3 dark chipmunk top down, (then close up of the freckled one, and then the twins.)

    The first and second photos are buff orpingtons. The freckled one is definitely and Easter egger and the chipmunk one that has its own picture I think is also an Easter egger. The last few dark ones I'm pretty sure are barnevelders, but I haven't ever had barnevelders so I'm not so sure on those.
