    Another MPC mystery assortment. I received one beginning of June and this is my July 6 batch. What are your guesses?

    I have several black & white chicks, some black & yellow and some black, yellow & white. Very different face coloring too.

    What do you think? These are supposed to be all pullets . . . standard fowl. My last batch it appears I have Welsummers, Speckled Sussex, Barred Rocks, etc. Still waiting for more feathering. It's fun. I have to stop though and as much as I'd like to order another early August hatch, I'm done for this year.

    This batch definitely has more one-of-a-kind chicks in the assortment.

    It has occurred to me that the hatcheries just LOVE making us play "guess the breed and gender"! I'm far from being an expert, but looks as if you have several barred rocks, black sex links, and some white leghorns. We'll see what the more experienced BYCers say!

    Quote:They are very cute & sent a nice assortment in June. . . thus, I found the need to do it again in July. I must say, "I'm done" and no more will be coming in August . . . even though I would but I don't dare ask my husband to build another coop. [​IMG]

    I see maybe some Speckled Sussex (Pic 5 in the back), the yellow one may be a delaware, Black sex link, Barred rock, Australorp (black & white with no dot on head), Red Sex link (yellow color with 2 orange stripes down the back) and a Production Red.

    Quote:I agree with the SS as my first batch had them and they look very similar. I was hoping someone would say Australorp as all of the black & white ones are all so very different. Thanks!
