    Did you hatch them from eggs? (Do you know the color of eggs they came from?)

    I'm not sure of all of them but here are some guesses:

    Duck: Buff Orpington (brown egg) or a White Leghorn (white egg).
    Big Dan: Black Australorp or Barred Rock.
    Goofy: Black Australorp or Barred Rock.
    Cookie: Black Australorp or Barred Rock.
    Vanilla: Brahma.
    Chip: Rhode Island Red.
    Midnight: Black Australorp or Barred Rock.
    Reeses: Rhode Island Red.
    Lemon: Buff Orpington.
    Apple Pie: Silkie? How many toes does she have?

    Keep me posted! The Barred Rocks will start to get white in their feathers if they are in fact BRs.

    Okay! Her face kind of looks like a Silkie but Silkies have five toes. ;)

    I have no idea, the yellows may end up being Buff Orpingtons, but I'm commenting to say that Skittles is a BEAUTIFUL chick, and I bet she'll be an even prettier chicken.

    I agree. I would love to find out what kind of chick Skittles is.

    Thank you! She is such a sweetheart. She has been my favorite since the beginning. She will just come right up and lay in my hand :)

    Where did you get them from? Are they from a hatchery and which one?

    Minnie looks just like my golden laced Wyandotte did at that age!

    Cookie looks like a black Australorp and I think Buttercup and Frappe are Easter Eggers!

    Lemon definitely looks like a little Leghorn chick to me also! And Skittles is gorgeous! I want her! Lol.
