    Ok, I finally got some pics to post here, in hopes that some of you can tell me what I have. I picked up 6 chicks from someone who bought a huge lot from a hatchery, so I have no idea what they are. Actually, I can tell what a couple of them are, although I am guessing, and I'm sure I'll be told if I am incorrect. Here you go!
    This first baby is not feeling well....I had a couple of my birds tested at CSU, and found that my flock has M. Synoviae...waiting for my Tylan to come, but that is another story. This is Aspen, and she is the smallest of the group. When she was little, she had circles around her eyes. She just finished eating and drinking, and with a full crop, she is taking a nap on the warm hearth.

    This is Margalo. I believe she is an Americauna. She is an absolute doll.

    This is Fabienne...and looks like an Americauna, also. However, she is huge compared to Margalo. Does anyone think I need to change her name to Fabio?

    Tweety did not want to cooperate for her pic. I'm guessing a Buff Orp.

    Hollywood and her friend, Raylon. I have no idea on this one.

    Last, but certainly not least..this is Race. We think he's a boy, and a bantam, at that. He's petite.

    The first one looks like a Campine.

    The second and third pictures look like EEs.

    The fourth one looks like Buff Orpington

    The fifth one looks like a rhode island red.

    The last one looks kinda like a Dutch Bantam Rooster.

    All the others are pullets.

    EE pullet (sold as Ameraucana by the hatchery)
    EE pullet (ditto above)
    Buff Orp pullet
    Production Red pullet (sold as Rhode Island Red by the hatchery)
    No clue--I don't know bantams, but he's a boy.
