    I recieved an Ornamental Layer Collection from MMH yesterday and several of these little girls have me confused. Any help would be greatly appreciated. This is my first attempt at raising my own chickens [​IMG]

    I am new to chickens so could be totally wrong but...

    Two and three look like Polish chicks. Four looks like a Buttercup.

    Not sure about the others.

    Thanks for trying [​IMG]

    I am not sure what the first one is, I think that is my free exotic chick, so it could be anything.

    The little black one- I was leaning towards a Black/Silver Polish...not sure which of those exist. Or maybe a Crevecoeur?

    They sent about 10 White crested black Polish and 7 of what I think to be Silver Phoenix? The rest have me baffled. So many chicks look similar.

    I would love for a couple to be EE'ers, my kids would get a kick out of that!

    I see where their legs look a little more on the greenish side. Maybe thats what they are!

    #7 has me stumped the most. I have another one like that one that looks very similar.
