    I'm pretty sure McMurray got my order wrong. I ordered the meat and egg assortment which was supposed to come with 15 meat birds and 10 egg layers. I also ordered an extra easter egger - to make sure I got one. Well I got 20 Cornish chicks, a couple Dark cornish?, a couple tan chicks (unknown type), and my easter egger. Can you guys help me figure out my unknowns?

    Could be any from a list of these:
    Cornish X Rocks

    Black Australorps; Lt. Brahmas; Dark Cornish; Black and White Giants; Buff and White Orpingtons; New Hampshire, Rhode Island Reds, Barred, White, Partridge, Buff Rocks; Delaware, Sussex; White, Silver Laced, & Columbian Wyandottes, Red Star and Black Star

    I'm pretty sure this one is my EE - please tell me if I'm wrong

    Originally I believed this one might have been a dark cornish. But then I saw this on BYC of a Wyhandotte Chick,

    I'm leaning towards that breed now.


    At first I thought this one was just a smaller, darker cornish. But its wings are a bit different. So now I just don't know [​IMG]

    The close up on the bottom ; probably a White Leghorn (great egg layers of large eggs), or White Rock! See those long legs. [​IMG] The first pic I believe is definitely an EE

    Look up Partridge rocks and Speckled Sussexes and see if they match your chicks. I think the bottom one might be a red star.
