    *For the ones I'm not sure of, and some that I know.*
    Just got a few days ago from Ideal. I know one with is my Male Gold Laced Wyandotte.
    [​IMG] *I think he is turning out nice.*[​IMG]
    Besides him I have 18 surprise special pullets. I have Guesses and will probably have to wait until they feather out, but wanted to see what everyone else thinks plus to show off the new additions.
    pic #1-- Maybe Ancona *received a few replacement chicks and got another like this one, and they both turned out to be Ancona.*
    pic #2-- Sexlink, RIR, NH, or production red. Not sure if all the chicks are the same or not.
    [​IMG] *I only have two of these now. Both have yellow legs.* [​IMG]
    pic #3--
    pic #4--
    *Pic 3 and 4 all look like Delaware.* [​IMG] and [​IMG]
    pic #5-- think all three are EEs
    [​IMG] * Yes, they are all EEs.*
    pic #6--Actually two pics but same four chicks. Production black or BR maybe.
    pic #7-- thinking Speckled Sussex
    [​IMG] *Got another that looked just the same until recently.* [​IMG] *red earlobes* [​IMG] *white earlobes*
    pic #8-- Production black or BR maybe.
    *Pic 6 and 8....Down to 6 chicks.* *2 of these* [​IMG] *1 of these*[​IMG] *1 of these*[​IMG] *2 of these, I'm thinking BR* [​IMG]

    Thanks to all.

    wait for someone more experienced , but maybe the black ones with the dot on their heads are barred rock pullets.

    Quote:Pic #5 are the only ones in question that don't show a straight comb, All the rest have straight combs.
    And here are two more pics of the lighter one from Pic #5.

    Thanks Hollywood Chickens and TyrannosaurusChix for the guesses. I did not think of some of the breeds. Thanks all for the complements. There are a blast, and it has turned out to be quite entertaining to figure out the breed.
