    I *think* this (above) is 2 EE's, and the last one is a mystery chick... guesses?

    2 blue cochins, Holy feathered feet on these guys!

    These 3 girls ALL have lightly feathered feet... SO one of them must be a mystery chick. 2 are the blue copper Marans (hen and roo) and the last is ? I'm pretty sure the one below is the unknown, but I'm wondering if they threw in a third Marans as my mystery chick! That would rock :)

    Marans? lightly feathered legs

    And these last 4 do not have feathered legs. I think they are my barred rocks and Olive Egger chicks! I don't know which are which though, so tips would be helpful!

    Thanks in advance!!!

    The one mystery chick with the 2 EEs might be an Egyptian Fayoumi with the extra feather legged chick they usually do add an extra chick or two of something you have ordered so would guess it is an extra Marans... if it is an extra Mystery chick it could also be a Langshan. Of the four clean legged chicks, the light one looks like something else, and the darkest one also... think you'll have to wait until they are adults to figure a lot of them out for sure!
