    Well I thought I would share a few pictures of the chicks now that they are getting older and maybe get some questions answered. First of all what are we??? Secondly do you think we are growing into giants? or is this normal for their age?

    White Langshan?

    #1? White rock?
    #3 & 4 (assuming the same bird)Silver phoenix roo
    #5 White laced red cornish
    #6 Mille fleur d uccle?
    #8 Silver lace Wyandotte, unless it has feet feathering then I don't know. [​IMG]
    #9 Black Australorp

    Ps can't tell what's normal for their age if we don't know how old they are [​IMG]

    Edit: Never mind my ps^^^^^^ I should have read the title better! They do grow up pretty fast, especially when you consider some of them will start laying at around 20 wks or so [​IMG] I think they are normal size for their age.

    Angie,

    Thank you for your response. Do australorps have feathered feet? Both the Black and the White chicks have feathered feet. I was sort of thinking maybe 1 and 9 might be langshans? 3 & 4 are the same bird and I was hoping that is what he was YAY ! Could 5 be a buff laced wyandotte? no feathers on feet ! 6 & 7 are the same bird ...do you think maybe Faverolle? 8 does have feathered feet...I was thinking it was a color variety of the cochins...of which I received quite a few. These all came from MM btw....anyway thanks

    Nope, Australorps don't have feathered feet, so they must be either Cochins or Langsan. Cochins do come in Silver laced. Not familiar with Langsan, so I don't know.
    I say #5 is a Cornish because I actually had one that I also got from MM. And they could be twins.

    #6 I'm still leaning towards D'uccle because Faverolles have a light solid colored belly. Of course I could be wrong. [​IMG]

    If I saw correctly, your white one has blue legs/feet. If so, she is a white Amerucana. I have one that looks just like her and she will be 12 weeks old tomorrow. Don't know about the rest. They are pretty, though.

    Are your sexed or straight run? It looks to me that you have all boys accept the siver laced and the brown one before it, that maybe why they seem so big. but then what do I know? [​IMG]

    Angie,

    Thank you again, this site is so much fun...no rude or snobby people just lots of good folk wanting to help others ! 6 & 7 are the same bird she has 5 toes and has fluff sticking out her face LOL she is soooooo funny and shy. And you are probably right about 5 I don't know much about any of the chicks....I only know I love them all and can only keep a few. They are all supposed to be rare or very rare breeds...but I am getting the impression that MM doesn't always get it perfect !

    Montverdechick,

    I think her legs might be bluish. I am adding another picture of her and her comb is yellow and teeny tiny. I actually have two...they could be twins !

    Corey,

    I do have alot of roosters. Not all of them are though and I actually don't mind having them. I think I have 9 Roos and 16 pullets. I love them all especially how they come flying up to the gate to see me. ( couldnt be the treats, they just love me so ) LOL
