    I have a two week old Yellow, and 1 week old Black chick (I think a Crested Polish), both from white eggs. We received the eggs from a random batch from a local farmer who keeps a huge mixture of chickens, he couldn't tell us from which chicken they were laid by... I suppose it is a little exciting not knowing what you would get. But curiosity has got the better of me! I have searched, and come to some reasonable conclusions, but I am opening up the debate to others who may have a lot more experience, since this is my first hatch.

    Yellow - 'Cutie' - I think is a Wheaton Marran.
    Black - 'Spike' (like the Gremlin) - Crested Polish?

    When I get the chance I will revisit the farm where we got the eggs and take a look at their stock of chickens to get an idea of what they could be. I never realised how many breeds of chicken existed!
