    Hello fellow chickoholics
    Need some help IDing our new peepers.
    We received our grab bag of all female rare birds from McMurray they are 5 days old at this point. I've tried to capture all the important bits in the pics but feel free to let me know if I've missed something. Quite a few I feel confident about IDing but would like confirmation, others are a toss up and just can't be sure...
    Sorry this post is so long and pic heavy and thanks in advance for your help!![​IMG]

    Chick 1 thinking silver Dorking (5toes)[​IMG]

    Chick 2 thinking blue Cochin

    1. I agree with you (Silver Dorking)
    2. I agree with you (Blue Cochin)
    3. Can you get a better picture? The ones you have are blurry.
    4. I'm thinking Golden Campine
    5. Blurry again [​IMG]
    6. Not sure
    7. Easter Egger (it appears to have muffed cheeks, does it?)
    8. Once the combs develop more you will be able to tell (Dominiques have rosecombs and Barred Rocks have single)
    9. Is the comb a peacomb or a single comb?


    Is there a specific list of what the breeds maybe? They are all such cuties![​IMG]

    This is one is #9 from above, I'm no good at figuring out combs when they are this small.

    Chipmunk 1: Not sure
    Chipmunk 2: Maybe a Gold Laced Wyandotte
    Chip,unk 3: I would say Araucana since it is the only breed listed which I know has the green legs and puffed cheeks
    #9 I think you should just wait and see since it is almost impossible to see what comb it has at that age :)

    I think you are right about chipmunk 3 I do see a slight puffyness in her cheeks.
    I have a white ameraucana that I just adore, so hoping you are right!
    I have silver laced wyandottes now that were rescued from a 4-H er who got bored with them, they had been beat up by some leghorns and we're naked butted for the first several months and then turned into the bully's! We also have 4 black copper marans (love those eggs!)
    As far as Brahma vs Cochin I would love either! Just excited to figure out who is who.

    Thanks again for the quick response [​IMG]

    Oh, here is Athena our white ameraucana

    Shh, don't tell the others, but she is my favorite

    I agree with Chicken Girl1. Athena is a beauty.
