    Here are a few updated pics of my babies. I have 3 week olds, 2 week olds and week olds. The third replacement batch from MM had a 100% survival rate so I now have 37(!) babies altogether. Way more than I was expecting. Please let me know if you think I've misidentified any of my crew:

    This is my exotic mystery chick (1 week old)- way smaller than the rest and feather-footed. What is she/he?

    This is Izzy. I think he's a Marans cockerel

    You know, that's funny. My mystery rare chick looks identical to yours!!! He/she is a bright orange color, feather-footed, and tiny in comparison to the rest of the chicks. I was guessing maybe a red cochin bantam. The feathers are beginning to appear on the wings (no frizzle, no silkie). If someone can identify your little guy, I would love to know what they think he/she is as it's probably the same as mine. I've had mine for almost a week now.

    I don't think Chickpea is an EE unless you're short one. The legs don't look the right color (are they really that yellow?). Does she have any other markings?

    Cute chickies though [​IMG]

    I think you mystery chick is a bantam cochin Roo.

    Mine was a standard cochin roo.

    Does anyone else have an idea of what my mystery chick and Chickpea are? And do you think Mimi is really a Partridge Rock?

    Chickpea is an EE.

    And your Dellie might be a roo. Guess we'll see.

    So what are my chances of getting a roo? I ordered 8 chicks from My Pet Chicken. We wanted all girls. Friends keep telling me that I am going to get a roo or two in the bunch. Does it really happen that often? My friend that ordered 25 says she is sure they will get 1 or 2. Just wondering if it is really that typical. I can't imagine sexing the little guys so do they have a scientific way to do it?
