    We have 4 mystery chicks that are throwing off my process of elimination identification method!!
    Out of the tans, I ordered 3 Easter Eggers, 1 Golden Laced Wyandotte, 1 Cream Legbar, and 1 Golden Cuckoo Marans. That leaves 2 mystery tan chicks.
    Out of the blues, I ordered 1 Blue Ameraucana hen and 1 Blue Ameraucana roo
    Out of the last 6, 5 are Straight Run Silkies... Pretty sure 1 is NOT a silky bc it came from a different hatchery who specifically told me they would absolutely not ship a silky with my order. I'm thinking maybe a Sultan?
    HELP!!

    I don't know! Because the Easter Eggers can look so different, and I've never had a Golden Cuckoo Marans or a Golden Laced Wyandotte... I don't know who's who or which one is the mystery.

    I did get them from Meyer. There should be a Golden Cuckoo Marans in there somewhere.
    You think all 3 Blues are Ameraucanas? That'd be awesome since i only ordered 2.
    If they are all 6 silkies, they flat out lied when they told me they wouldn't ship a silky to me with my standard sized chicks.

    The one I said looks like a barred rock is the golden cuckoo maran.
