    I got my package of joy yesterday morning and the postman even dropped them at our house on a Sunday morning, I'm guessing since they were making a lot of noise!

    I got the rare breed assortment from MMH. The polish ones are pretty easy to identify, but I'm not so sure about some of the black ones and all the chipmunk colored ones. Let me know your thoughts. Thanks [​IMG]

    Egyptian Fayoumis?

    Blue/Black Cochin?

    EE or something else? The spots around the eyes aren't like the other EE's I have, but I know there's a lot of variety in them. Modern BB Red Games, Red Caps?

    More EE's??

    The center black chick, Black Spanish or Dominique or something else?

    Ok, the 4th pic, looks like phoenix. The black chick could be any of the black breeds they offer in their colection, it could even be from blue parents.
