    I am not sure the first ones are silver laced. I see a lot of gold in them. May they by chance be Gold Lace Wyandottes?
    I think you are pretty good on the others but the amberlink could be another BO.

    Hmm. The "Gold laced" came out of the bin marked Silver laced...was hoping for silver laced, and me knowing nothing about chickens thought they looked pretty gold too.

    The Amberlink...well I got 3 of them out of the bin marked "Amberlink" and got 4 "Buff orpintons" out of a bin at a different store. And once I got them home...I can't tell them apart. So I thought i got a picture of two seperate ones lol but maybe not. Is there a way to tell Buff orp chicks apart from amberlinks?

    I think the amberlink chicks wing tips will be more on the white side than the BO. Very close in color as chicks though.
