    Hi everyone,

    I received my order from Mcmurray this morning. I ordered 25 Rainbow Layers and they gave me 26 chicks plus a free rare chick. I took pictures of each different looking variety. I'm sure some are probably they same breed with different markings but I took pics anyway. Also sorry about the photo quality my camera charger is missing so I had to use my cell phone to take the pics. I will post the pics with details and my guess and if anyone can help with any ideas of what they might be that would be great! Thanks!

    I got 11 of these, they are mainly black with white spots on their heads and wings and their legs and white and black. I'm guessing Barred Rocks.

    I got 2 of these they are black and white with no head markings and they have black legs. Maybe Black Sex Links?

    I got 2 of these they are black with the cutest little face markings and they have a lot more white then the other black ones. They have yellowish legs.

    I got one really dark brown chipmunk looking one.

    I got 4 reddish colored chipmunk looking ones.

    I got one really light chipmunk one that reminds me of my EEs when they were little but it has yellow legs.

    I got 3 reddish brown chicks.

    I got 2 yellow chicks but one is really yellow and the other is almost white. I put them in the pick together so you can see the color difference.

    No guesses? Also I wanted to add that the Rainbow Layer special includes rare, and standard chicks so it really adds a ton of options.
