    These chicks are the ones no one could I.D when I first recieved them.
    Does anyone have a clue now that their feathers are kinda grown in?

    #1 This one is my biggest chick and was added onto my order of bantam assortment, and s/he is definitely a standard.

    #2 This one has fuzzy feet, and is a suspected cochin, but what color is this?


    #3 Is Blue (?) with black unfeathered legs. This one just baffles me. It recently started growing a bump of feathers on the top of it's head too.

    #4 Not much to say about this one. It has feathery feet and when it was a little chick it had an all white head and an all black body.

    If it helps I got them from Ideal.

    I think the first pic looks like a Gold Pencilled Hamburg. The pencilled variety of Hamburgs tend to be the smallest of the varieties with the spangled being a medium size and the solid colours being the heaviest. They are considered a light standard breed. They can also come in a bantam size.

    I forgot to mention, I can't really tell the earlobe colour. If they are red than its NOT a Hamburg.
