Ok, lots of pics
I got 25 ornamental layers which are rares and tophats. [Sumatras, Dominiques, Golden Laced and Silver Penciled Wyandottes, Silver, Golden, Buff Laced, and White Polish, Golden Campines, Golden Penciled Hamburgs, Silver Penciled Rocks, Partridge, Black, Buff, Blue, & Silver Laced and White Cochins, Araucanas, Dark and Buff Brahmas, Phoenix, Fayoumis, Salmon Faverolles, W. L. Red Cornish, Lakenvelders, Black and White Langshans, Red Caps, Silver Leghorns, Crevecoeurs, Silver Gray Dorkings, Modern BB Red Games, Sultans, Buttercups, & Spanish]. got 2 "bonus", sold a few as peeps, 21 left.

Some are easy! 6 black/white polish and one white polish. A black crevecour, I think. one wyandotte (roo??), 2 cochin, 2 spanish, 1 brahma, 2 gold?? and 3 silver??,1 speckled redhead ??

These are a day or 2 shy of 6 weeks old!

Rooster?? my only wyandotte, no point of comparison. The "bonus" chicks were straight run. what color is this? seems darker than "gold' but not really brown.. ?

appreciate any insight!
oh , the gold ones must be golden campines!

I just checked the silver/gray ones and they only have 4 toes, so I guess not dorkings after all ..
Ooh, exciting! Yes, so the one with the slate legs and gray body I agree does look like an egyptian fayoumis, and silver leghorns hm! interesting!

this is my working theory/count:
2 buff cochin
2 white face black spanish
2 gold pencil hamburg
1 egyptian fayoumis
4 silver leghorn(1 almost certainly roo)
1 brahma
1 wynadotte (roo)
1 crevecouer
6 black/white polish
1 white polish
