    No green legs. Maybe welsummers?

    Any other guesses? Ideal doesn't give a list of possibilities. I'm stuck!

    For you #2 group, they are too uniform for Easter Eggers. They don't really have the yellow skin of a Welsummer or Leghorn. I think they are Speckled Sussex.

    #2 group looks a lot like phoenixes. I could be wrong but my chicks looked almost identical.

    Yep I think they're Phoenixs, chicks look identical. I'm most interested to see what people think the black chick and #4 chick are! 4 has me stumped

    Chick #4 looks very much like silver spitz chicks that I've hatched. I can't seem to access my chick pics right now, but if u google images silver Spitzhauben chicks, u might see some resemblance.

    Okay I'll have to look those up! It is a breed ideal carries. The chipmunk chicks are hard because so many chicks can start out looking that way. I'm pretty sure the black chick is a barred holland

    I'll be in the barn!
    In the second picture, the chick on the right looks a bit like my golden campine...
