    When I ordered my chicks the box came with male packing peanuts. 10 dark colored chicks were clearly male and not part of the order, but there were 18 left and I had only ordered 14. Two of my flock are now characteristically different. I've attached a picture of the known female easter egger and one of the unknown sex unknown breed. Anyone know what it is?[​IMG]

    Cute topknot!! There can't be too many breeds with topknots in the hatchery catalog; try matching them. I've got seven extra chicks in my order, and it will be fun trying to ID them. Mary

    The first one looks like a silver laced polish. The second one I'm unsure.

    The 2nd one I know is the easter egger. Silver laced polish cool.
