    Hello! Today we received a shipment of baby chicks that were supposed to be a "rare breed assortment" and I am wondering how many "rare" easter eggers I happened into. We ordered 15 and got 2 Egyptian Fayoumi, 2 Dark Brahmas, 5 Cochins (2 blue, 3 partridge), 2 welsummers, 1 salmon faverolles...and these 3 chicks. The possibilities are:

    • Buckeye
    • Ancona
    • Easter Egger
    • Ameraucana (Wheaten, Blue, Black, Splash)
    • Black Sumatra
    • Andalusian (Blue, Black, or Splash)
    • Appenzeller Spitzhauben
    • Sicilian Buttercup
    • Salmon Faverolles
    • Golden Campine
    • Buff Chantecler
    • Wyandotte (any plumage, incl. Blue Laced Red, Partridge, Silver Laced, Columbian, etc.)
    • Barnevelder
    • Brahma (Buff Brahma, Light Brahma)
    • Marans (Silver Cuckoo, Golden Cuckoo, Black Copper, Blue Copper, Blue Splash, White)
    • Delaware
    • Dominique
    • Dark Cornish
    • Cochin
    • Welsummer
    • White Sultan
    • Polish (Assorted colors)
    • Exchequer Leghorn
    • Speckled Sussex
    • Hamburg (Assorted colors)
    • Lakenvelder (Silver, Golden)
    • Partridge Penedesenca
    • Jersey Giant
    • Blue Orpington
    • Silver Grey Dorking
    • Egyptian Fayoumi
    • Black Langshans


    I'm pretty sure on 1-2 of them being EE, but one (chick 2) is throwing me a bit, as well as chick 1. I'm wondering if those two chicks are possibly partridge penedesenca. I'm 99% sure chick 3 is an EE. I would love some input!

    I would say Sicilian buttercup, partridge penedesenca, and Easter egger, but I'm not 100%.

    Thank you! These breeds are a little tough for me. The EE I am 100% sure about.

    I have an 8 week update and I think I have 3 exotic Easter eggers, but would appreciate opinions.

    Chick 1 (thought to possibly be Sicilian buttercup)

    Chick 2 (thought to be partridge penedesenca, almost certain she is an EE because of her beard and muffs)

    Chick 3 is for sure an ee.
