Hi all, New to keeping chickens, and new to this forum. Hoping for some help (and encouragement!) Here's the story: I ordered 27 chicks from a mail order breeder. I was sharing the order with an experienced chicken keeper- I had 6 sexed chicks, he had 20 straight run "adopt me" mixed breeds. There was an extra one thrown in for good measure. When the box arrived, however, only 12 were still alive, and after three days, only 6 of those remained. I was utterly devastated and heartbroken, and felt all sorts of remorse and responsibility. Needless to say, I kept what remained (sorry, buddy, order your own next time). Now I just need to know what I have! Below are pics taken throughout the last week (they are all one week old today!) The first picture has seven chicks. The little red one did not make it. The rest remain. The last is of a yellow one, puffy cheeks, a black spot under one wing, and white flight feathers coming in. The other two yellow ones have golden feathers coming in. The two black ones are different; one looks like a penguin, now, with a fluffy white underside and all black feathers on "her" wing, while the other is mottled black and white, with black and white feathers (and by far, the most friendly and curious one of the bunch!). My initial thoughts are that the chipmunky one is a female brown leghorn. Hoping the two yellow/golden ones are buff orpingtons. "Penguin" looks like a black copper marans, but I don't think I'm that lucky! Maybe a Jersey Giant? Haven't got a clue for the others. Any help at all would be very much appreciated! And thanks, ahead of time, for sharing your experience with us new Mamas!
