    I ordered a bunch of chicks that arrived last week. Some of them were painless to figure out, The rest not so easy. I know I have a white silkie, a black silkie, a partridge silkie and a white cochin. I’m pretty sure I have a silver seabright. I may have a black copper marans, Blue Cochin, Buff Brahma bantam- What do you think the chicks below are?

Am also happy to take any of the following, any feather legged bantam, Cochin ( any color) Golden laced Wyandotte, Buff laced polish, and or ancona. Most interested in bantams.

    1 -- Mottled Cochin or Black Cochin
    2 -- Silver Sebright
    3 -- ??
    4 -- Welsummer?
    5 -- Blue Cochin or BCM - does it have a dot on it's head like BR have?
    6 -- EE
    7 -- Black Cochin (if #1 is the Mottled)
    8 -- White Cochin
    9 -- Partridge Silkie
    10 -- Black Silkie

    Just guesses, based on what you ordered and what they have... [​IMG]

    #4 is not a welsumer, mine looked very different, although not a bantie. Welsumers have the classic chipmunk stripes on their backs and heads.
    #5 looks a bit like my light brahma, in posture and build/color

    Are #1 and #7 similar? They look a little like my australorps but these have feathered feet, which australorps don't have.

    But whatever they are -- they are certainly very cute!

    #7 looks very much like the Black Copper Marans chick I received from MPC (although mine has no feathering on the legs, as it should--your's does and is more typical of the breed.--Mine also turned out to be all black--go figure!)
    Cuties!!
    Enjoy!
