    I thought it might be fun to place some guesses on what my 1 week old chicks are now and see who's right in the long run!
    I'll try to take weekly pics.
    I'm guessing there is not much point in photographing their combs or profiles at 1 week, so I've just taken pics of their wing feathers. (please let me know if I'm mistaken!)
    ETA: I realise that none of them can be feather sexed, was just trying to show who was feathering in faster :)

    I think this is a Hamburg (silver spangled):

    Barnevelder 1:

    Barnevelder 2:


    Sussex: (not sure if it's Light or Coronation)

    RIR 1:

    RIR 2:


    For what it's worth, Chick 1 and Chick 2 both have the start of tail feathers coming in.
    Chick 3 just did the most rooish stance before, and I think the Fav and the Cochin are roos because the Fav is the only one out of a dozen eggs that hatched (so what are the chances it's a he?!) and the Cochin's my favourite (so again, betting that means it's a he too!).
