    I'm curious about their identity for fun more than anything, but also to sort of test myself. The listing said they'd be a mix of "Sebright, Black Rosecomb, Cochin Bantams, Japanese Bantams, Polish, Silkies, and various colored Araucana's" but I'll take Araucanas to mean Ameraucanas.

    Thanks, and have fun! My guesses are underneath the picture.

    Top left to bottom right: Ameraucana, Ameraucana, black something or other, possibly Sebright something, this one is pretty obvious [​IMG], not a clue.

    far right bottom is your sebright,
    cochins should already have feather legs, auracauna, ameraucauna, and EE (the latter is more likely from a hatchery) should all have slate or greenish(the EEs) legs, any have chubby cheeks? and that little red one is to die for cute!!

    The black one on the top far right and the naked neck - who I found out is really a showgirl? naked neck and silkie mix? have feathered legs. The first two have slate green legs.
    How do you know the one is a sebright?

    Hi fun monitor!! 5th one is showgirl. I am leaning towards black rosecomb for the 3rd one. 1st, 4th, and 6th look EE. 2nd is a cutie!! Maybe sebright, No cochins, silkies, or polish in there for sure. Actually a showgirl is a specialized turken/silkie that has been bred over time to look all silkie with just a naked neck. I have a black turken/silkie who hasn't been bred over time, and she does not have silkie feathers. Hope this helps.

    Thanks for the info! I agree that the third is a black rosecomb. I'm interested to see what you think the red one is. I think it's an Ameraucana mix with something red, obviously [​IMG]

    The Sebright and Showgirl are my favorites. The Sebright is so tiny that it reminds me of one of those fake yellow feathery easter chicks [​IMG] Oh, they're all bantams.
