hello everybody! I just hatched 14 chicks Tuesday 12/4 and Wednesday 12/5. I have all different colors and breeds from someone I found on Craigslist. I sent pics and asked her what she thought they might be but she didn’t seem too sure about some. I know what color egg most of them came out of if that helps. I’d love to hear what you think! I’m most curious about the silver/ yellow one.
Here are pics and what our guesses are for each so far:

Did the seller keep separate pens for each breed, or are the eggs from a mixed flock?
They’re all mixed. I’m most curious about the silver/yellow one and the white ones with black spots. Ive never seen chicks like that before

Do you know what breeds are in the parent flock? That may help determine what sort of mixed breed chicks you have.

I have no idea what any of them are. But on this dark and wintry morning, they are like little rays of sunshine! If housing were unlimited and feed was free, I am sure I would have an endless stream of baby chicks. They are all adorable. How fun to see what everyone is going to become!
