    These are all out of the same hatch. They are pretty funny looking but what breeds are they?

    Middle one looks like a Delaware mix. Hard to tell from the front. Can you get some side pics of them?

    All appear to have Easter Egger in them, beyond that the only way to say for sure is telling us what comb types, earlobe color, and shank and sole color they have.

    ok no luck getting any better pics. they are kinda flighty yet. I did get a hold of the person I got them from he said they are most likely Polish, [FONT=Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif]Ameraucana, Silkie and some other Bantam breed. I like them though :)[/FONT]

    I see mostly silkie and EE, maybe Faverolles? But I think the 2nd could be part Sultan since it looks an awful lot like my sultan mixes. I don't think there's any Delaware in there. I did have a chick that looked like a full bred Delaware with a pea comb! A coon got him last week b/c he thought he was a goat and slept with the goats instead of safe with the other chickens [​IMG] but he hatched out of an EE egg and his dad was a Faverolles/Dominique cross! So it's really hard to say with mutts where they get their coloring, etc! The dad roo was sort of crele colored (similar to crele, but not true) and had a single comb and no feathers on his legs. But somehow he threw a Delaware colored chick, one that is white with broken dark gray barring, one that looks like your last chick on the right, and one that is colored like a male salmon Faverolles, but blotchy, who has feathers on his legs! All from EE eggs!
