    Hi all,
    I ordered a mix and match bundle of chicks from McMurrays about four months ago, and there are a few breeds that I still can't figure out. What do you guys think?

    #5 haven't got a good shot of this lady grown-up, but it looks like she's growing a beard. Yikes!

    Any help is appreciated.

    I'm mostly with Veer--my first thought on the first bird was campine, though. I guess they have straight combs, and the Hamburgs have rose combs?

    I can't see the barred bird's comb well enough to tell if it's a rock or a Dominique.

    Yep Campines have rosecombs, I thought Campine first as well. I would say Dominique for the barred hen because from what I can see the comb is flat looking which probably means a rosecomb. :)

    I thought silver phoenix on 3 and 4 (at 4 months old one would think that leghorns would have bigger combs)

    I didn't think of that. Do phoenix have white earlobes also? That's why I went with leghorn.
