    Been collecting these guys and have no idea what kind they are. Except I think three are silkies? Any help would be appreciated. I know the larger four are Easter eggers. They don't all stay in this box, was refreshing the other box at the time. Any help would be appreciated. Thank you in advance. [​IMG]

    Too much of a jumble - individual photos please - need to see front views of each to check the combs, and naturally standing side views to check for other gender/breed clues.
    Color of legs is important and with silkies, they should have 5 toes- dark feet, comb, skin

    And this gal right here she's my favorite first little yellow baby chick I ever had. But don't know what kind she is.

    I'm not an expert on chickens by any means, but I can assure you that the only silkie you have that you posted an individual picture of is the white/brown one with the black skin. Any of the chicks you have with black skin and down feathers will be silkies... I'm not sure what kinds your other chickens are.

    Not sure of the breed of the first one but it's looking to be a Cockerel. The second a Silkie and the third ? These are my guesses.

    After looking more into it, the first one I am still unsure of, but can guess that you're right and it's a black splash cockerel chick. The second is still 100% a silkie, but the third isn't. The third doesn't have black skin, but I am almost certain it is a white cockerel. I looked up pictures, and they are almost identical to your third chick. I hope this helped!

    ok, ty .they are looking so rough right now. all akward. they have feathers though. i thought they were supposed to be poofy. they have a mixture of soft poofy stuff and feathery feathers so im so confused.
