Hatched on 6/13, I know it's super early, but I thought it would be fun to play who's-who on my new batch. I ordered 2 black Cochins, 2 btw Japanese, and 2 sdw Old English, the others are hatchery choice!

I'll post more pictures as they grow up too. :)

I think you are correct about 1, 10, 20, 19, 11, 17, and 16. 5 looks like a Porcelain d'Uccle. Does 4 have feathered feet? 7 looks like a Partridge Cochin, 8 looks like a Cochin, 9 the muffed cheeks make me think d'Uccle possibly a Millie Fleur. 12 again thinking d'Uccle, does 13 have muffed cheeks? 14 not sure, 15 thinking Cochin, 19 I'm thinking Brahma. Sorry for jumping all over the place, since there are so many possible breeds which they could be (especially feathered footed breeds :)) I gave my best guess. They sure are cute little boogers!

OH PLEASE enjoy them as chicks. They are only a few days old, and when they are fully feathered out the colors will probably not be any where the same. Try posting new photos when they are 8 weeks old.

So many chicks start out the same color etc.

I like to tell folks if they want to know what gender at birth - get a puppy.

Oh I'm not interested in their gender at this point, only curious as I what assortment I was blessed with.

I'm enjoying them immensely-- and half the fun is guessing what's to come under all that fluffy down. Just yesterday I started to notice the little black spots coming through on the wings of what appears to be some lovely little Mille Fleur d,Uccles.

It's like Christmas almost, wondering what's inside that cute little gift. :)

Basement flooded and soaked the brooder, the chickpeas got booted to the newly finished coop for the night. Xmas lights for a touch of celebration and to keep them quiet, the poor dears.
