    Hi, we are 5 month old pullets. Some guesses on the breeds of chicks from the same seller that looked similar included Polish cross, Silky/EE cross, and Jersey Giant. We are all purchased at an auction in Langley, British Columbia.

    The whole flock (at 20 weeks):

    Penguin (23 weeks): Looked like other chicks labeled as Jersey Giants -- bottoms of feet are yellow.

    They are definitely crosses. They all look like they have some EE in them and I would guess the last three have polish as well. How many toes do they all have?

    It appears to me that they are all mixed. Looks like some Polish in the 3 with poofy hair, and some Easter Egger possibly in the ones beards/muffs.

    No Jersey Giants. Just a bunch of pretty little mutts. You may be getting some blue/green eggs!

    Look like Silkie/EE or Silkie/Ameraucana crosses. I have some Silkie crosses and they always have that poufy crest.

    I have no personal experience with these breeds but just got EEs Dec. 3rd. Fancypants does look like a Polish cross, and the other three look like EE crosses. I say this from all the pics I have seen of different breeds but it is hard to remember them all. lol. They could all have polish in them.

    Definitely part EE! Whatever else was mixed in is a mystery, though it certainly could be Polish, Silkie, and perhaps other things, too. Regardless, they're very attractive birds! Gorgeous coloration on all of them. [​IMG]

    EE/silkie crosses. All silkie crosses I've ever seen on here have a tuft just like that. Penguin may be EE/jersey x with the single comb and no Poof.
    Definatly all crosses.
