    I accidentally posted this question in baby chicks but a helpful user sent me here.
    I acquired some chicks from a friend at a hatchery.
    I can pick out the Turkens (Naked Necks), the bantams (maybe cochin or brahma), and the big ones are obviously some type of meat bird.
    1. This one has been tricky to identify. Amerucana? EE? Something else?

    2.little bantam next to a silver/grayish bird. Maybe a little yellow mixed in?

    3. huge bird compared to the rest...a meatie?

    I think I've got 1 RiR (as identified in previous post), black australorps and... These birds were hatched 2 weeks ago. Also, if you can tell if they are pullets or roos, I'd appreciate the help...
    Thanks!!!!

    #1 looks almost exactly like my Cleo, who I bought from the Grange and they told me Ameracauna but I'm pretty sure she's an EE. Yours just has greener legs!

    Do the 2 chicks at 10 and 11 o'clock have naked necks? Did the others pull feathers off or it is natural?

    If naturals, the coloring on one looks to be a Turken, but not so much on the other.

    Those are Turkens, as far as I know. Is there a difference between Turkens and naked necks? They gross my friends out but I think they are cute.
    Thanks for all the help, everyone!
