    Hello! When they were a few days old I posted a few of these chicks, but there were three who were sort of questionable, and now that some feathering has come in I figured I would post again! These chicks are 10 days old, from the My Pet Chicken Rare Breed assortment.

    CHICK 1

    - Very, very puffy cheeks and a fluffy head, extremely fluffy overall. Clean legs, the friendliest of the bunch.

    CHICK 2

    Chipmunk chick, has a mask and clean legs. Second friendliest, or at least brave.

    CHICK 3

    She is our total mystery chick. She looks sort of like a buff brahma chick - we have three of those - but she's much lighter and feathering in a bit differently? She has feathered legs and is sort of gray with a dorsal stripe and gold head. Could she still be a brahma or is there something else?

    Thank you very much!

    First one a gold laced polish, the second a Sicilian buttercup, the last one I'm unsure.

    I would guess buff brahma on chick #3

    #2 is definitely a Sicilian. I have two that are 4 1/2 weeks old now.
    #1 is Gold-laced Polish, I also have two, but they're only 2 1/2 weeks old.

    I don't have a buff brahma, I have light brahmas; so I consider #3 a bit of a guess.

    That's so exciting, thank you very much!
    Two (along with one) is a keeper, so that's awesome to know what she is, there are so many chipmunky chicks my mom and I were stumped.
