    I have guessed on a few but I'm probably way off! (Ok, the Turkens mean I at least get one right!) I can't find them on their website though, does anyone know what category they would be under? Any guesses would be great! I will try to get pictures of some of the others up soon.

    Thank you! #2 I think is a turkey but I don't know what kind. We got 2 of them and they are actually really curious about us and aren't skittish like the chicks.

    We have the same turkeys! They are super friendly aren't they? And with the polish we have two of the blacks with white hats and two of the silvery ones. The brown one is pretty cool looking.

    We only have black turkens. The white one is neat looking too.

    The white turken is awesome...I need to take a picture of its back! It's my favorite (which scares me because my last favorite didn't make it...silly, I know!) The turkeys are AWESOME. They are really friendly (the one that wasn't feeling well is perking up some) and one of them LOVES attention. It was being crazy loud earlier and I think it's because it wanted us to go in there. It comes up to us when we put our hands in the brooder. My husband didn't want turkeys but these guys are so much fun I might order just turkeys next year! [​IMG] There are stil a few I'm nervous about not making it but they are tiny.

    How big are your turkens? Mine are barely bigger than the bantams!

    Your Turkens probably are bantams, because I'm pretty sure standard Turkens are a dual purpose breed (meat and eggs), so they're usually husky chicks.
    The turkey looks alot like the bronze chicks my neighbor hatched out last summer. If its a broad breasted turkey be prepared to butcher it fairly early. They're heart breakers :(
    Three appears to be a gold laced Cochin.
    Four, I agree silver and gold laced Polish.
    Five are black Cochins.
    Six are probably white crested blue Polish. They look a little light to be black to me, but they could be black- time will tell.

    Your chicks are SUPER cute!

    I was thinking the same thing about turkens being duel breeds. I didn't see them under their bantams but these guys are tiny. They fit right in with the bantams. I use to think they looked kind of funny but after getting them they are so cute! The black one isn't to active but I'm hoping it perks up soon. Thank you for your input! This surprise has been a lot of fun!
