    Hi! I received 17 chicks from McMurray's ornamental layer collection on 4/27. Does anyone know what these are? Chick 1 is very sweet and docile. Likes to sit in my hand [​IMG]

    Chick 2 is all white and quite a bit larger than everyone else. He/she is starting to get feathers on her neck that look darker than the white ones on her wings.

    First one looks like an Ancona.

    Thank you! I also have 4 of these "chipmunks". 3 have yellow legs and 1 has greenish legs. Any thoughts? They are almost identical but the one with dark legs has a little more brown tint to her feathers

    And I also have 2 polish.... One is quite a bit larger than the other. Both seem healthy and active, just wondering if one could be a rooster?

    #3 might be a golden-penciled hamburg. The "chipmunks" are hard to tell from the pic, but if they have yellow breasts they might be speckled sussex or if they have light brown breasts they might be brown leghorns. I had one of each from McMurray that are now grown up and they looked almost identical except the breast color when they were that small. Do you have a closer pic of them standing up?

    I will try to get better pics this afternoon. I was also thinking those same three possibilities. Thank you so much for your help!

    Chick 2 might be the white/light variety of Blue Andalusian. My Andalusian chick was bigger than most of the others for awhile and had a similar head/beak shape as yours.
