    We really need help with this one. We just received these three chicks and aren’t completely sure the supplier even sent the ones we asked for. I thought the polish one would be easy to spot, but none of these seem to have the head tufting. We think the first one is the light brahma, but the colouring on her head looks a bit ameraucana. The first one is the biggest, but it’s possible they messed up and sent us a bantam light brahma. None of these appear to be booted.

    chick 1 - light brahma or ameraucana

    chick 2 - white ameraucana or buff laced polish

    chick 3 - buff laced polish or bantam light brahma (she is a lot smaller than the other two)

    I forgot to mention leg color. The first two have the grey colored legs and the last one has light or pinkish legs.

    Oh my, I don't see any of the chicks here that you listed....chick #1 has tufting of an ameracauna....but #2 doesn't look anything like a polish....

    I hope someone else sees something that I don't...good luck :)

    These all look like mutt chicks to me. Definitely no Polish or Light Brahma as Polish have a very distinct vaulted head and Brahma have feathered legs.

    #3 might be a light brahma mix.

    mutt chicks?!! I can’t believe it! [​IMG]
    This has been such a bad experience all in all, but I guess I should be grateful that they at least sent us chicks and not, say, ducklings or maybe piglets.

    I would be contacting the seller, if they told you they were pure bred. Sorry they're not what you expected. They're still cute though :)

    Is it just me, or do they look sick? :/

    The first and second may be EE's.. Not sure though.. None are polish.
