Hello,
I just posted my mystery chick guess breed thread but here is the rest of my chicks. They are 3 weeks old!
I get the Black Copper Maran and Olive egger mixed up, they both came leg banded and I know those two are either or but not sure if I have it right, and I did order a Easter Egger and I just assumed the brown one is the Easter Egger but let me know if I got it right!!!

Also I just looked at the Meyer Meal Maker breed list by date, and it says the the Meal Maker on my hatch date 6/21 was a Green Queen…. I’ve read it’s not the most accurate so any guesses are appreciated 😀

Looks like you are right about every one! But I hope someone more experienced answers! The mystery one looks like a cross between an ameracauna. But I don't know what the feathered feet are from.
I’m not sure about the feathered feet either but they are so cool looking! Someone on here sent me a link to Meyer mystery chicks and I guess based on their schedule she may be a Green Queen!

Cool! What are Green Queens made of? Are they ameracaunas mixed with marans like olive eggers or something else?
I’m not sure! This is what their website says! “The Green Queen is a Meyer Hatchery created hybrid chicken designed for our customers wanting a prolific colorful egg layer with a friendly and calm personality. Green Queens are an extremely hardy breed that will lay lots of large green eggs. They will come in a wide range of colors, most are bearded, some will have feathered legs, and some even have 5 toes! Just like other Easter Eggers, no two chickens will look exactly the same. This unique mix is sure to add beautiful colors to your chicken yard and eggs to your basket.”
So I’m not sure what that means haha im
New to chicken keeping so still learning all things!

I think I read (or maybe just guessed) green queens were crosses of Ameraucana and Faverolle. That would explain all the feathering possibilities.

EDIT: And the possibility of five toes!

I’ve heard good things about them based on the website customer reviews! Hope it really is one 🤞🏽
