    Hi, These little ladies will be a month old on October 4th. They came in a random female assortment of chicks from My Pet Chicken. I would love some help identifying what breeds they actually are. I’m fairly confident that 1,2, and 3 are a Welsummer, a Silver Lakenvelder and a White Leggern. It’s the three black chicks that I’m unsure about. They have all black legs but white around their faces. You can see in the photos that they are smaller than the other chicks that I have. Black Australorps? Sumatras? Any input would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

    Also, I think they all look like girls. Is it too soon to tell?

    I don't know if it's just me, but 1 and 3 look rooish to me.

    EDIT: I think it's just my imagination going wacky... [​IMG]

    I've never heard of a Colombian Wyandotte before. You're right though, she does look a lot like one. I had been thinking Silver Lakenvelder, which has the same coloration, but her body shape seems a bit different than one. She's also a lot fluffier. Any idea on the black chicks?
