    Good Morning all!

    I just received 10 baby chicks from Meyer Hatchery and I am having a very difficult time identifying them. I was wondering if anyone my have an idea. They are all females and all are rare breeds. Thank you in advanced IMG_20190626_081902344.jpg IMG_20190626_081852625.jpg IMG_20190626_081726921.jpg IMG_20190626_081641916.jpg IMG_20190626_081631684.jpg IMG_20190626_081526028.jpg IMG_20190626_081548487.jpg IMG_20190626_081429650.jpg IMG_20190626_081435258.jpg IMG_20190626_081401960.jpg IMG_20190626_081334787.jpg IMG_20190626_081312292.jpg IMG_20190626_081319241.jpg IMG_20190626_081253224.jpg IMG_20190626_081259937.jpg

    Well, the rare breed collection can include:
    "Ancona, Easter Egger, Andalusian, Wyandotte, Dark Cornish, Delaware, Dominique, Jersey Giant, Brahma, Partridge Rock, Light Brown Leghorn, Hamburg, Sussex, German Spitzhauben Appenzeller, Buckeye, Sumatra, Cochin, Polish, Marans, Campine, Lakenvelder, Faverolles, Buttercup, Welsummer, Exchequer Leghorn, Sultan, Ameraucana, Blue and Lavender Orpington, and others as they are added to our rare breed offerings."


    and based upon this:

    I think the first one could be an austrolorp,
    The second will need some time and feathers.... Unless those legs are pinkish. If they are then its a speckled Sussex. If yellowish, then maybe a welsummer.
    the grayish could be a whole bunch of different things.
    the yellow with the fuzzy legs is probably a cochin
    the next is another 'maybe' Sussex. It could also be a welsummer.
    The last one, do they have fuzzy legs too?

    I'd wait for feathers. Its so much easier to figure out breeds when there's feathers.

    I see a yellow chick with fluffy legs, I’m going to say cochin. But more time will tell
