I've got a new shipment of baby chicks in and they weren't marked!

I need help figuring out that they are? I'll post pics here in the following weeks (?), maybe this will turn into a fun game instead of a frustrating mystery?

Hmmm I'd say Wendy is your red silkie. Olivia is probably your blue silkie. Carrie looks like my exchequer leghorn did as a chick, but she might also be ancona. Either Elaine or Lillian are the penedensenca or cochin... the cochin will be super fluffy with feathered shanks, and a bit larger in size. Lizzy could be white sultan, but looks more like white cochin with how round she is.

Cute! I miss that fluffball stage!

Here's an update:



Here are some of the 1.5 week old chicks "assorted" I need help with ...

This is fun isn't it?

This is Connie, one of the two smaller ones.






Lillian






Wendy (pretty sure she is our red silkie)






Here's Lizzy, buttercup yellow and tiny




Elaine




Carrie, I am assuming she's an Ancona?
She's also the most inquisitive and friendly. (and the biggest)






Olivia:





Poor sweet (sweetest) Leah is now RIP. She was the white silkie. Our dog thought she was a toy :(

I still say Connie is a blue silkie and Carrie is an exchequer leghorn. Kung Pao's spots didn't come out until she was very close to fully feathered. Her wings were very solid black and white until the end. But Carrie might be ancona as well. They're so similar in breed.

I still think Lizzy is white cochin. Olivia = partridge cochin. Either Elaine or Lillian are the partridge penedensenca. Do either of them have feathered feet?

Neither Elaine or Lillian have feathered feet
