    I received these as part of a rare breed assortment and I'm having trouble identifying these two.

    1. Phoenix? Red Jungle Fowl? She has pink legs so I know she's not a leghorn and seems too light to be a speckled Sussex. She's a small chick but not a bantam.

    What hatchery are they from? The first might be a Phoenix. :)

    I'm not a complete expert at breeds but I'll try

    Number 1 I'm not sure but it looks like a Brown Leghorn but like you said its probably not

    Number 2 It looks like a Ameraucana

    I was on Ideal's website for about half an hour and I am absolutely stumped on what your second chick is. Are you sure it isn't a bantam? I'm guessing the first chick is a Silver Kraienkoppe or Silver Phoenix. What type of comb does it have?

    I've spent so much time trying to figure out what chick 2 is too! I'll check the comb but I was between those two breeds for #1. I've called ideal and they have no idea what was sent to me. I don't even know of a non rare breed chick that resembles chick 2! It's my biggest chick, bigger than my bantam chicks and chick #1 that's it's with too.
