    1) This one I think is a Phoenix... it is about 1/2 to 3/4 the size of the others.

    2) I am thinking Lakenvelder on this one, but need confirmation.

    3) Not sure, potentially a Golden Campine?

    4) Haven't the foggiest on this one... it is VERY petite! Any ideas?

    A couple of questions: where did you get them and are they standard or bantams? They are so cute. Also, are there feathers on any of their legs? It does NOT look like it, but I was not for sure.

    Quote:Hello! I got them from McMurray Hatchery, their Ornamental Layer Collection (a mix of their Rarest of Rare & Top Hat Bargains). They are standard size. Aww, thanks! I think so too! ^_^ Nope, no feathered feet with the chicks pictured.
    I know they gave me 1 Free rare exotic chick and 2 cockerel packing peanuts(I haven't figured out which are the 2 cockerels yet.)

    Edited to add: the url for the Onamental Layer Collection and that the rare exotic & 2 packing peanuts might be batams!

    I just discovered that 1) is a bantam Silver Duckwing Old English Game.... It wasn't mentioned in the list for the rarest of rare... so I am assuming that it and it's twin are my 2 packing peanuts... time will tell though...

    Mine could not be welsummers as Murray McMurray Hatchery does not breed or sell that breed of chicken. [​IMG]

    Does your Mcmurry chicks act really good?
    I ordered some and want to make sure they will come safely?

    Quote:So far they are doing great! just make sure to have water ready and waiting for them. The trip dehydrates them quite a bit.

    Hi,
    All I have is the Murray McMurry Catalog, so here goes a guess:

    1. Def. Old English Game as it looks just like the picture

    2. Maybe a White Giant Jersey

    3. Gold laced Wyandotte

    4. Golden Seabright

    These are just guesses, using their catalog. There is really no way to tell, until they feather out a bit.

    #2 - potentially lakenvelder chick: has been getting progressively weaker... [​IMG] no matter what I try to do. Giving it water & yolk by dropper isn't working. I think I will be making a call to McMurray tomorrow to inform them of it's untimely passing and requesting a replacement to be sent along with a local feed store's orders. [​IMG]
