    First bird is a mixed breed cockerel.
    Second looks like a blue copper Marans pullet. I'll take her if you don't want her [​IMG]
    third looks like.....not sure. Could be a clean legged black copper Marans pullet. Does she have a few feathers on her legs? How about white skin? Those would indicate Marans or Marans mix.
    Last bird, my thought is Olive Egger. Could easily be a Marans x Ameraucana. Pullet, I'm pretty sure.

    Thank you so much! When I ordered chicks I ordered black copper marans, blue double laced barnavelders and olive eggers. So I was trying to determine which of those breeds these ones were. It seems I may have a few outside of those breeds. :)

    I have no clue on Breed ;) but I know for sure that he top one is a Cockerel and the rest are Pullets.

    Your rooster is the Blue Barnevelder, then.

    I guess the cockerel could be the Barnie. How a bout a profile shot of him?

    Getting a blue when you order black, not such a big deal IMO. So, seems like you got pretty much what you ordered [​IMG]
