    Here is my Meyer Hatchery assortment. They can be large fowl or bantam for turkeys. Just for fun, what do you think?

    This boy has a white chest.

    This is one of the 3 black chick above, but his chest is turning brown.

    Feathered legs and pink feet. Maybe Antwerp or D'Anver?

    Very Cool. I thought those were Black Cooper Marans too. The one one that is confusing is the ones with huge feet with 5 toes. I have Meyers 2012 catalog and can not find a chicken in there that matches it. Thanks for the input!

    Mr five toes should be a Dorking. I think they're about the only five toed breed that's not tophatted or feather footed. Meyer has Silver dorkings.

    Thank you! I googled for pics and yes, he has to be a Dorking! Very cool. I have 2 of them, hope the other is a girl. Meyers must have them on their website, but not in the catalog.

    Hi Hdowden,
    I think you are right on all of those. I will have to post some of the other cutie pies that came with this bunch. 1 White Crested Black Polish and a Spitzhauben Appenzeller. Now I have to get some pictures of my 2 week old chicks and post those too.
