    the petshop had ordered the pullet assortment from McMurrays. I went in for 4-5 and came out with 9. Thankfully DH loves me. I'm pretty sure 3 are Barred Rocks, the others i don't know but have some guesses.
    All have clean legs

    There are 3 that are black and white/cream, single comb. Pink feet. I initially thought all 3 were Black australorps, but at least 1 is not the same as the other2

    It has a black beak/comb and much less cream/white overall and legs are black but for tiips of some toes. she is also the smallest.
    It's in the center of this shot

    There's one with the most white facing left and a medium amount of white on the left facing right [the dark one is on the right facing right]

    most white head on

    the one inbetween

    I don't know if the second and third are just variations on an australorp?, or is that the first one and these are something else?

    3 others with some brown on head. all have yellow legs, but 2 have what I think are rose combs : flat with a slight point caudally. Are Wyandottes the only ones with that?
    Of the 2 with these combs, one has white in it's wings, the other brown

    The one with the rose comb and brown in body

    You won't be able to tell what mix they are till they get quite a bit older and then since they are Hatchery chicks you may never know what kind of chicken they actualy are or what other breeds they were mix bred to.

    You have 1 Golden Wyandotte (brown & black, rose comb) and 2 Silver wyandottes (Silverish brown & white. One has a rose comb, other has a single comb. single combs sometimes show up in hatchery birds) 3 Barred rocks/ possible cuckoo Marans (Black and white wings, white spots on heads) 2 black Australorps/ possible Jersey Giants (Black, white bellies/faces)

    And this one. This one looks like a Black Sexlink (also called black star)

    I agree. It may be hard to distinguish Giants and Australorps for a while, if you have both. For sure you have Silver and Gold Laced Wyandottes. Not so sure about the Blk Sexlink, that could be another Giant or Australorp, some don't have as much white on there face and can fool you.

    If that last one starts to get gold feathers around it's neck instead of all blk, then it is a sexlink.

    Thank you for the input.

    Previously i always knew what they were supposed to be, It's weird not knowing this time. Exciting in a different way.
