    I received these a little over two weeks ago and am still having trouble ID'ing them, especially if they're supposed to be from the rare breeds (is Ameraucana really rare? which is what I think a majority of them are). I'm used to my typical white, run of the mill, barnyard ladies.


    This is my little crooked beak gal and "Fuzz Bucket", which I think are a mottled houdan (5 toes) and a golden polish, respectively.


    No clue what she is...


    I thought she was a blue cochin when I first got her but now don't know.


    This one in the front has green legs. The speckled face girl is sitting behind her, I'm baffled as to what she is.

    Any help would be extremely appreciated. And honestly, I cleaned their pen Saturday, they are some messy little boogers! The yellow plate was a treat just given a half hour before of cut up grapes with a side of grit... they had it a mess in no time.

    Oh, and an extra - my favorite guy, Patches.


    Thanks for your help!

    I'm not really sure on pic #2 or #3.

    This one in the front has green legs. The speckled face girl is sitting behind her, I'm baffled as to what she is.

    Both of these are Ameraucanas. I am fairly certain of that! We have 2 that looked just like them as chicks!

    Lastly, your rooster is lovely! What a handsome boy! [​IMG]

    I was going to say too that the speckled one looks like my Buttercup babies.

    In the 1st pic it looks like you have a silver spangled spitzhaben and to the right some kind of polish (can't see th color real well.) Your speckled one looks like my buttercup too.

    In the first picture, I see what you said is your mottled houdan, but I do not see a polish. Looks like a silkie behind it to me....

    on the 1st pic , the b/w chick with the tophat. Is there something wrong with the beak? It looks really weird on the pic. I was going to say the first two might be polish because of those nostrils btw.
