    Where did you get them? Some look like mixes to me.
    first-silver laced wyandotte hen
    second--some splash bird. The feather legs could be marans but the body looks awful light for a marans and I can't see the head.
    third--mixed breed, with some barring or cuckoo in there somewhere. It looks male to me, but age is the key there.
    fourth--maybe mixed, maybe australorp
    I agree the red bird may be an ee, or ee crossed with something else. If that's a pea comb, it may lay green eggs. Although, it almost looks like hackle feathers? I can't tell if it's just the color or not. Again, knowing how old the bird is would help.

    1. Silver Laced Wyandotte.

    2. It has green legs.and what looks to be a pea comb, so I guess EE.

    3. I guess a roo - it resembles the coloring on my exchequer leghorn but, who knows?

    4. Sumatra or Australorp

    5. ?

    My order of these day old chicks included 6 "rare females", 2 "black australorp female", 3 "silver laced wyandotte female" and 6 "brown egg layer assorted female". So out of these 17 ordered 6 died within a day or two of me recieving them. Being that young wasnt sure who was who anyway! So now that they are older, 12 weeks I thought I would be able to start identifying what I have!

    Thank you to those who have posted to try and help me ID these chicks! all of the chicks pictured, EXCEPT the brown one ( i didnt realize I posted that photo) were ordered from My Pet Chicken and are what they describe as "rare females", so they wouldnt they be "mixes"?....right? They are 12 weeks old give or take a few days [​IMG]
