    So, I was at the feed store today and came home with these sweet chicks from the "rare breed" bin. I did some googling and couldn't figure it out, so I'm turning here. Can you help me identify the breeds? They are about a week old and were sexed as pullets.
    The first chick is gray but with some yellow undertones. It's growing a single comb (it looks like) and has gray legs and feet.

    The second little one is yellow and gray/black and also has gray legs and feet:

    I can provide more photos if it'll help with identification! Thanks in advance! :)

    #1 Lavender Orp, mayhap? Their feet come in a few different shades, and the chick's coloration looks right.

    No idea on the other two, though I'd guess #3 is barred.

    The Lavender Orp is definitely possible for the first! Especially after looking up photos of others at the same age.
    I should have clarified, there are only two chicks, so the first two photos are one and the last two are the other. :)

    Wow. She looks a lot yellower in the second picture.

    She does, but in the brooder with the others she's really gray. It must be the lighting!

    I'm thinking Lavender Orpington, and Silver Spangled Hamburg. :)

    Thank you! The first one is super sweet and I can already pet her while she sits in my hand. The second is flighty, but I caught her and she roosted on my hand. Let's hope she's not quite as crazy as the other stories of Silver Spangled Hamburgs I've read about! :D
