    I ordered 10 of these. Looks like I got 4 verities. Here they are, any guesses?

    Then 4 of these, I think they're all the same. A couple have faint chipmunk stripes while some have slight face patterning

    Top two are most likely silkies.

    They don't look like silkies in person & silkies are not a rare breed (I didn't think), if Ideal considers them rare I'm definitely complaining lol! They don't have blue skin either...

    The first is probably a Faverolles. The next has me stumped. The 5 toed breeds are Faverolles, Dorkings, silkies, Sultans and Houdans. It doesn't look like any of those.

    I'm thinking Faverolle on the first also after looking them up, I can take a better pic of the 2nd one if needed. It has the body type & features of the first except with that orangish/blue/buff coloring...

    That 2nd one looks like a Buff Brahma chick. Are you sure it has 5 toes?

    My first thought that it was a Brahma also. Can you check the toes again?
