1.) the chick with black and yellow mottled coloration has fluff on his legs.

2

3.) oddly enough although none of the possible breed i list below have five toes, this chick does.

4.) the picture below im pretty sure is a polish due to the fluffier head

5

6

7.) in this picture, the grey, red/brown, and black chick i believe to be the egytian fyoumi.

ok so i have been given these 6 chicks but i dont know what i have. i am under the impression that they are possibly, polish, minorca, cornish, fayoumi, crevecoeur, lakenvelder, kraienkoppe, langshan, or sussexs, due to the fact thats what the hatchery says they sent, (my neighbour ordered an assortment from sand hill preservation)

any guesses?

The feather legged one is probably the Langshan from your list. Agree on the polish and EF. I am not sure which chick you are saying has five toes, but I have gotten filler dorkings from them before and they have all colors. The only potential chipmunk striped breed I see listed is the Sussex & Krainen, but you should be able to tell them apart by comb. The Minorcas should be big tall chicks, could be either of the black or white ones.

so its not letting me post more pics of the black chick, the one you guys say is possibly a dorking, my question is, the order that was placed was for hatchery picked assortment, if they got to pick out which chicks were sent, and they sent us a packing list of the chicks they sent, would they send a dorking and not label the fact that they sent a dorking?

I have gotten chicks that were not on the packing list, usually just one or two in a shipment, always figured they were either box jumpers or egg mixups, mistake in packing list (have had that happen) or just leftover chicks and since I usually get a bunch of breeds they just tossed in an extra chick. I have never ordered dorkings, but got two that were not listed, and three one time that were.
