    I ordered leghorns, barred rock, buff orpingtons, americauna, Rhode Island red. The hatchery added 10 extras. I think I have identified all except these. What are they? [​IMG]

    What hatchery? Do they have feathered legs? It looks like they have "puffy" cheeks, do they?

    They are from Ideal Poultry. I ordered 4 ameraucana, 2 buff orpingtons, 1 Rhode Island red, a barred rock and a leghorn. They sent me 10 extras for warmth. I think I have identified all of the breeds that I ordered but can't tell what these are.

    They are much to young to make that decision. Try posting when they are 6-8 weeks old.

    Ideal poultry added male leghorns for warmth! They added 8 to mine and I called them to find out.... It's leghorn.
    I ended up giving them away....and I made those people I gave chickens to become backyard chicken lovers too! Yay!!!!

    With all due respect you may have gotten male leghorns but hers/his have feathered feet and leghorns don't. The may be d'Uccles? Puffy cheeks and feathered legs plus there coloring makes me think that. Are they smaller then the other chicks? But as drumstick diva said they are to young to accurately guess what breed/gender they are.

    @evitachuI wad going to call them too but since it's the weekend I thought I'd try here. All the pictures of leghorn chicks look different than them. That's why I questioned myself. Is this what your leghorns looked like?
