Also any idea what the black chicks with black feet are? we have black chicks with yellow feet too! I am so excited to see what these chicks grow up to be.

With McMurray Hatchery, I have learned that their "Ameraucanas" and "Araucanas" are simply mutts. Araucanas are rumpless, (what a chicken would look like if its rear end got shot off), and the Ameraucanas lay green and pink eggs. True Ameraucanas lay only blue eggs.

Oh they are all so cute! I miss having little tiny chicks! #11 looks just like one of the EEs McMurray sent us in March. Not sure about the rest, sorry.

You have some of the same chicks I have, got them from McMurray 2 weeks ago, and yesterday...

#4 and the others like it are probably Silver Laced Wyandotte's

#7 appears to be Blue Adalusian, unless the photo is altering the color appearance. Is it a gray chick?

#15 might be a Black Australorp

The red ones I am still confused about... Someone mentioned possibly Red Leghorn...? Just a really uneducated guess though...
