    I got my replacement order from Welp today and they were ALL VERY ALIVE! [​IMG] (If you saw some of my other posts I had a bad time with my first delivery).

    Anyway! I got 4 "packing peanuts" which was great! I got one extra cockerel for each breed of roo I ordered and one extra brown egg pullet... I also got some new breeds that I didn't have before... but I don't know what they are! I got the mixed bag of brown and white egg layers and also got some EE's...

    Can you help me out with what these babies are? [​IMG] (Other than REALLY CUTE!!)

    This one is the same chocolate color over her whole body...

    This one is black with the little brown face...

    This one is a a dark gray/blue with the little brown face...

    Any ideas? [​IMG]

    BTW: I have LOTS more pictures of these and other babies on my blog... I love the one with the 3 week old EE with the 2 day old EE... there's a HUGE difference!!!

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    Edited to add...
    Here are some new pics of the last 2 chicks and their twins... Any idea what they are now that they are getting big-kid feathers?

    Thanks!!! [​IMG]

    Thanks! I've had fun with that blog.. I love to take pictures so blogging is a GREAT release! My poor chickens have been "flashed" to death though [​IMG] and my BF thinks I'm some sort of chicken addict... wait... I AM!!! [​IMG] Keep reading it! I carry my camera with me at all times "just in case"!! [​IMG]

    Oh.. and BTW... I think I reversed the "black" and "blue" baby pictures... I think the one with the egg tooth is the blue one! It's hard to tell the difference with these pictures...

    I'm going to say at least a couple of them are EEs. The first one for sure.

    I wasn't sure if they were because of their brown legs... my other EE's have sort of olive legs... (plus I only got 5 EE pullets... and I think I know who they are... maybe! haha) [​IMG]

    They sent you that second one by mistake. She's really MINE, and I'd appreciate it if you'd send her on to me.

    Srsly, she's such a cutie!

    Quote:Haha!! Isn't she adorable?? I didn't realize that she still had her little egg tooth until I looked at the pictures! Her fuzzy head kills me! [​IMG] I have about 3 that look like her (another reason I don't think she's an EE - I only have 5 EE pullets and there are others with the cheeks, legs, etc...)

    Anyway, I have way too many chickies now! If you were closer you could make me an offer! [​IMG]

    I agree that the first one is an EE. I don't know about the other two.

    Anybody else have an idea about the last 2? Like I said, I have a few that are black with little brown "masks" and one that is gray with the brown mask... Maybe they are the same breed but different colors?

    I got them from Welp and I've been cross-referencing their breed list with feathersite to try to figure this out...

    They are just so darn CUTE! I also got bunch of pure black ones... they don't look like the australorps I got in the first batch (they had white chests and bottoms)... Maybe they're jersey giants?

    I'm still wondering what these little masked cuties are [​IMG]

    A also just did some fast math and figured out that I have 47 CHICKENS!! How did that HAPPEN!?!?!?!?!? Yikes... some of these babies will be available once they get a little older... I CAN'T have this many!! I'd have to build another coop! I only have a 10x12 foot coop (with a big run)... I don't think that's enough room!!!! AHHHHH!!!! [​IMG]
