    Hi all! [​IMG]

    I received my chicks from Cackle yesterday and we have had a lot of fun trying to figure out who's who.

    This is what we ordered--
    partridge cochins
    welsumers--(little troublemakers!)
    light brahmas
    cuckoo marans
    rainbow assorted pullets
    We received 8 more than we ordered and I haven't a clue what those would be. I could use some help IDing these guys.
    Please play!

    This one has a cross on its head and it almost looks like ink!
    Cross body
    Pebbles side
    Pebbles top
    Loudmouth Lemon

    [The names are above the pics]

    Thanks for any ideas you might have! [​IMG]

    Happy looks like a white jersey giant. Baby looks like either a cuckoo maran or a BR, as does Spot. Cross could be a NHR or RIR. Lemon almost has the fluffy face look of an EE. Rusty looks like a gold-laced somebody - I'm currently confused about my 4wk gold-laced somebody! Those are my guesses, wonder if I'm right on any of them...

    baby- cuckoo marans
    spot and shadow could be cuckoo marans as well.

    good luck

    I'd guess Shadow isn't a maran. Its comb is black, which makes me think something like minorca. My 19wk black minorca had a black comb until she was about 15 weeks old.

    Quote:Ahhh I just noticed that. I didn't take into consideration the assorted pullets part. Thanks!

    Quote:I agree, I recently got some chicks from MM and the RIR's had the same thing (some was more of a dot and some more of a line shape) but looked like ink on the back of their heads. Coloring, wing tips, beak, and legs all looked just like 'cross' too.

    Spot and Baby look like my Barred Rocks did, Cross possible Rhode Island Red, Pebbles - Partridge Rock, Goldie - Buff Orp., Loudmouth Lemon - Delaware, and I'm not sure about the others! I do not claim to be an expert by any means, but these are my guesses. They all are adorable! [​IMG]

    I didn't check if Cackle has these breeds but Spot could be a Speckled Sussex and Rusty might be a Silver Spangled Hamburg. Spot and Baby look like barred rocks.
