    Hey all. Ordered 15 brown egg layers from mypetchicken, they arrived in good shape. However, since I ordered the assortment, I don't know what breeds they are and sorting through the website has still left me unsure.

    I'm pretty sure I have 2 dominiques...

    I'll take more pics of them individually once I have someone else here to help hold the phone.

    This is one of what I think is a dominique. And the 2 in the same pic above, silver lace wyandottes??

    Sorry they are blurry. I'll take more later.

    When buying hatchery birds in assortment your best bet is to wait until the chickens are feathered in to tell the breed. You can still make a guess but I have none for you right now.

    Yeah I agree. Them, 2 dominiques and I think the 3 yellow birds are buff orpingtons.

    That little chicky in the second pic looks alot like my gold laced Wyandotte as a chick (except with white where the gold was on mine). My guess is a silver laced dotte for that lil cutie!
