    ooohhh cuteness. I see

    either Barred rocks or Dominiques (those cute black ones with whote spots on the head

    New Hampshire Red or RIR possibly

    Those little bluish silvery ones are adorable and remind me of my splash cochin as a baby but not feathery feet

    That one up front in the last pic...red with whiter face...looks like my red cochin as a baby but no feathery feet

    Where did you order these guys? Are these bantams or standard breeds?

    I ordered them from Meyer Hatchery, excellent service from the get-go. They are the standard brown egg layer assortment. Ordered 25, received 26 healthy chicks.

    Those chicks look just like mine!! I'm glad all arrived in good shape. I lost a couple of mine, I think due to stress, but the others are growing fine. I'm interested in finding out what the smudgy looking yellow ones are. I've got several of those and couldn't decide what they are. Good luck with those fuzzies.
