    The McMurray site has photos and some utube clips of the baby chicks. Go look through them to guess what they sent you. I think the rust red chicks look like red leghorns. The top two look like ee/"Americana"-type chicks. The black ones with the yellowish white spots look like black Australorps. The ee's are mixed, so you may never know the exact breeds. Just take care of them and enjoy watching them grow.

    We got 26 "ornamental layers" from McMurray back in June and I had guessed right on most of them by looking at the utube clips. We can't wait for our girls to lay eggs to see what color eggs the unidentified mixed chicks lay. Good luck. Hopefully someone with more experience will be able to be more helpful.

    We are already enjoying them!

    This is what I know so far.
    from my order:

    1 black star male
    1 delaware male
    1 rhode island red male

    from looking at them:

    about 10 barred rock
    a few Australorp
    a few easter eggers

    Quote:pretty sure you are wrong so far... rainbow layers are all supposed to be hens, if I'm correct..

    This time of year, I would guess you have quite a few black sex links, red sex links, EE, and a few RIR, and something that will lay white eggs...

    Adorable! The one with the arrow shape on top of it's head looks like either a Speckled Sussex or Welsummer to me.

    I was thinking I saw some Partridge rocks, Barred Rocks, Leghorns, and EEs. But that is just a guess.

    I'm not wrong. We specifically ordered the roo's I mentioned in addition to the rainbow hens.

    I thought the yellow and black one looked like my hatchery Anconas.

    the ones that are multi colored brown with "eye liner" - like the 4th picture- those are Easter Eggers. You got quite a few in that batch.

    It also looks like you got at least 2 Road Island Reds.
