    These are purely guesses, since alot of new chicks look the same to me, but here goes:
    #1 Silver Spangled Hamburgs
    #2 Buttercup
    #3 Partridge Rocks
    #4 I have absolutely no idea
    #5 appear to be crested, Polish?
    #6 and 7 are most likely Austrolorps or Black Giants
    #8 Production or New Hampshire Reds
    #9 Easter Eggers

    One thing I can say for sure, they are CUTE! Good luck with them :)

    All of these are bantams and have feathered feet but no black skin.

    Thanks! I didnt realize how much 6 and 7 looked alike so I went ahead and added that they were turkens. I will admit I am pretty stumped on what they all are lol

    I think #4 looks like Austra Whites. We got a chick this year and that is my guess based on the black spots on the white chicks. I also checked and Cackle sells these as well. [​IMG]

    Bantams:
    The one with the buff head could be a Buff Brahma.
    I guess the photo doesn't show enough to guess much more than color. Do any have cheek puffs/beards? What sort of combs? That would make it easier to guess if they're d'Uccles, Cochins or Brahmas.

    I think I have 2,3 and 7 too...and the reds. I guess I need to go fish them out and take more pictures! Some of the ones I though were cornish look like 4. My husband doesn't really want to keep meat birds but if we have them I think it might be worth a shot. If not I need to find them homes while they're still cute! A few of mine have feathers already but most are just cute fluff balls!

    Ha! Now after you said they were Turkens I can see their little naked necks in the picture, duh!
    The last picture you added, the bantams, they could be partridge ir gold laced Cochins. Its hard to tell since they're all pecking around. I don't see a beard on the one that's looking up, so I'd guess Cochin (they have straight combs, yellow skin/feet- though blues can have slate colored feet and black typically have a dark wash on the yellow).

    SlipsWife I need to take better pictures. I dont think we have any cornish.

    Howfunkyisurchicken its really hard to take pictures of all of them lol. They like to run around and pile on top of each othrr. I will say they have yellow skin and no birds thatI could tell.

    Anna, they are austra whites! Yay for one breed down! Thank you!

    Popsicle, I will get you better ones.

    thank all of you for your help. I really appreciate it.
