    I have 11 chicks that I got as a "rare breeds" assortment and I'm having a hard time figuring out what breeds some of them are. Can anyone tell from these pics what breeds any of these 4 chicks are? I have more pictures available if needed.

    Thanks!

    Where did you get them from? That black could be and Australorp, Jersey Giant, or Maran. I'm thinking Maran based on the sheen of it's feathers already.

    More pics. Make sure to get the comb in a photo and for the black bird it's feet pads.

    The only one I can say from photos so far is the Golden Laced Wyandotte. It's in the second and partial third photo.

    Yes I know I have 3 Golden Laced Wyandotte chicks and 3 Lavender Orpington chicks and a Partridge Cochin. I thought I had a Welsummer also from her chick fluff markings but now she has a white chest which I don't think Welsummer chicks have. (Its the chick in the 3rd pic) They are only 8 weeks old so they don't really have combs. I'll try to get more pics

    The first I can't see too clearly. Second looks like a silver spangled Hamburg. Third is a speckled Sussex. I'd guess the last is a Jersey Giant after looking at their list.

    Thanks everyone for your help.... after looking at the options for the black one I do believe it is a Black Sumatra mainly because of the way it looked as a chick (which I don't have pictures of). Now that I know all the breeds I can finally make the name plates to hang on the coop. I guess I'll need to actually give them all names first. Yikes!
