    They're not even the same breed as each other, so really who knows? the top on the left kinda made me think of a gold laced Wyandotte, but it's got dark skin so that's not right. The black chick is going to be something black---not a big help there, right?

    I'd e-mail pics to the seller and ask what they are, and get a refund. Not so much cause of a poor hatch rate, that's just a risk with shipped eggs. But you paid for Wellies and those ain't them [​IMG]
