    I got a surprise assortment with my last chick order and I have a few one-of-a-kind chicks that I am trying to identify what breed they are to get them some friends of the same breed. The gray one especially needs a friend and I am thinking either Lavender Orpington or Andalusian? Can anyone recognize what these littles are? Sorry the pics aren't great. They're fast!! The 5 larger birds are bielefelders.

    I hatched the Bielefelders. The others are from my pet chicken.

    Ok. Cute chicks!

    does MPC have a chick guide or pics? I know Meyer hatchery has a chick ID tool online for the breeds they sell. Maybe MPC does too.

    Yes, they do! And this order was fulfilled by Meyer. I thought I had it narrowed down to Andalusian for the gray one, but am now thinking Lavender Orpington. A lot of the breeds look the same to me, but I am not good picking up on some of the subtle details that others see. It amazes me how they can start out looking about the same and turn into something so different.

    Being raised together they will bond together.
    I wouldn't worry. ;)

    That's what I was thinking! It looked like the little gray one was pecked a little bit last night though and I can't see why. She's pretty feisty and outgoing but was kind of keeping to herself this morning. They're all at the max a week apart and have been together since just days old. Will keep an eye on them today and see how it goes. They're graduating to the big brooder this weekend so maybe the extra space will help.

    You have a bunch of cuties! I can't tell you more than that, though, sorry. Truly, they don't know what they are, either. They will establish a pecking order based on personality and dominance, not on color or feather barring or anything external like that.

    Edit: ugh, pardon my typos!
