    Received my first order from MPC to add to my six ISAs from tsc! My guess for the 2 black are australorp, very curious about the 2 beautiful browns, and as for the 4 golden I've settled with having to wait to see!! [​IMG][/IMG]

    The black ones have a white spot on the head, so they will be barred rather than solid black like an australorp. Breed possibilities are barred rock if they have a single comb and yellow skin, Dominique if they have a rose comb, or cuckoo marans if they have a single comb and white skin.

    The brown ones are most likely either brown leghorns or welsummers. There are some others that also look similar as chicks. You'll probably have to wait until they are older to figure out exactly what they are.
