    I'm pretty sure this is a Buttercup:

    I think this is a Buff Orpington perhaps?

    The one on the right is a Dominique, right?

    I was told when I got the big white on that it was a Leghorn. Please excuse her/his tail. My gosling hates that chicken! Opinions on sex?

    Thanks in advance!

    I don't know about # 1 and # 2. The black one looks to be an australorp. Buff Orpington on the yellow one, I believe. The speckled one was advertised as a Dominique? Could very well be. If the comb looks broader / flatter than the others it is a Dominique (rose comb). If the comb is the same as the others, it is a Barred Rock - and a boy... The others look to be girls...

    first: sicilian buttercup (assuming it has a buttercup comb).
    second: the picture aren't honestly that great.... can't really tell.
    third:black austrolorpe.
    fourth:sorta hard to tell but maybe buff orpington.
    fifth:yes that looks like a dominique...
    sixth:cream leghorn, looks to be a pullet but it's always hard to tell with leghorns because of the larger combs...

    I was told the speckled ones were Dominiques. They are hatchery birds that were put in the fill an order and they man I got them from was told that's what they are. But who knows! [​IMG]

    No idea on the breed of the mystery chick, but I'd bet anything that it's a boy! As for the dominiques, if they have rosecombs (which they appear to have) then that's what they are.

    ETA that if the comb on your 'buttercup' looks like this:

    Then yes, it is a buttercup. Otherwise it's probably a golden campine or something like that.
