We ordered the ornamental layer collection from Mcmurray plus the free mystery chick. We lost one of the chicks on day 2 despite our best efforts to get it to eat and drink. They are 3 weeks old now. A few are easy to identify but I am stumped on most.



This is Fuzzhead. Obviously a golden polish. I'm wondering though, if this was our free mystery chick could this be a cockerel?













This is Ninja. It was all black with a white spot on its head early on. It had pretty bad paste problems but we got it under control and now seems healthy.









I must have missed a chick during the photo shoot,...if I can figure out which one I'll post it later.
Thanks for any input.

Probably Easter Egger.

Golden Laced Wyandotte.

It could be a cockerel, but its too young to tell for sure. I don't see any obvious cockerel characteristics yet.

Silver Spangled Hamburg, I think (what color are its legs)

Silver Spangled Hamburg

Not sure. Could be an Easter Egger, Egyptian Fayoumi, or possibly a Silver Penciled Plymouth Rock (but probably not, as they are supposed to have yellow legs)

Same as above.

Easter Egger.

Barred Plymouth Rock.

I wouldnt have guessed easter egger on any of them based on the photos from Mcmurray's website. What indicates easter egger? Colored eggs would be fun. I was thinking the last few that you were unsure of could be Phoenix??



This is the Mcmurray image of phoenix chicks,....they have the little eye stripe.
