    A while ago we had purchased the Cackle Hatchery Surprise. I have identified most of the birds we recieved, but there are a few I'm not quite sure of yet. I was wondering if anyone had any opinions or comments about what breeds some of these may be.. Sorry for the lighting of the pictures..

    Pictures have been numbered..

    1. I originally thought that this might be a Light Brahma, but its neck feathers strike me as odd, it also isn't very heavy, as compared to Brahmas (I've raised about 30 of them before). It doesn't have any black on the leg and foot feathers, but it does have a pea comb..

    2. I believe I have two of these.. I'm thinking a golden Phoenix, but not sure.. I believe the feet are yellow.

    3. I'm completely dumbfounded by this one, as seen, it is buff colored, has a single comb, yellow feet, black on the tail, but, along the back some of its feathers are spangled with white (think the color of a Caramel d'Uccle), but I have no idea what it might be.

    4. Two pictures of this one, there are three chicks that look like this, although one is a rooster. I was thinking it was a Silver Phoenix, but when I relooked at this picture, I noticed the small comb. I'm not sure whether it is a pea comb or if its just smaller at this stage and will be a single comb.. The other two have single combs as far as I know, but the coloring is the same. I hope that makes sense.

    5. I've got two of these, I'm pretty sure they are Birchen games but I've never had much for game birsd before.. thoughts?

    6. And lastly I have two of these. They are the smallest of all the chicks. They remind me of the little female bantam Jungle fowls, but I honestly have no clue.

    What does everyone think?

  2. 1 is a light brahma. And by the color and size of the comb, I would guess rooster.

    Here is my 2 cent vote:
    1- light brahma
    2-brown leghorn
    3-red sex link
    5- EE ?
    6- EE ?
  5. I'm not seeing white earlobes on number 2; that would help confirm BL. I think it could be a Welsummer.

    3. I think it's a NH red or RI red (do they both have black in the tails?); those white feathers will probably molt out.

    The only one that I think I might know is #3 and she looks like a red or golden sexlink to me.
