    *Edit* I think I've got it... I think #2 is the Wyandotte (as noted by many!), the EE is the one pictured further down the thread and that leaves #1 and #3 to be the Gold Spangled Hamburgs although they look nothing alike (less so the more feathers they get!) Thanks everyone for the imput!

    These girls are 2 weeks old. They shouldn't be cross breeds & they're all supposed to be pullets (bought them from Ideal). I'm trying to figure out what breeds they are.




    What do you think? Thanks!

    What did you order? It might help to identify them. [​IMG]

    Well, I see cockerel in the first, but not in the 2nd--just don't see any gender ID there or in the 3rd.

    Sorry, I was looking for breed, not gender. I sure as #@%*! HOPE they're all pullets as that's what I ordered (and paid extra for)! I know they "oops" sometimes on sexing, but I hope not!

    Here's what I ordered:
    Ameraucana, Dominique, Spangled Russian Orloff, Columbian Wyandotte, Light Brahma, Buff Chantecler, White Giant, Appenzeller Spitzhauben, Cream Brabanter, Blue Hamburg, Gold Spangled Hamburg.

    It would help if you told us what breeds you ordered. They are all gorgeous chicks![​IMG]

    I think the second one is a columbian wyandotte. The third looks like an Easter egger (Ideal calls them ameraucanas) maybe. I'm clueless on the first one.

    #1 might be a Partridge Chantecler

    #2 might also be a Light Brahma (or Columbian Wyandotte) - I can't tell the difference between a rose comb and a pea comb at this age.

    #3 might be an EE (Ameracauna in Ideal-speak)

    And I'm often wrong!

    *Edit* I think I've gotten it figured out as they get more feathers. I think these are the EE's. [​IMG]

    They have very similar markings as the light Brahma but no feathers on it's feet.

    The only other breed we're having a hard time identifying are the Wyandottes. We had 4 yellow chicks, 2 of their wings grew in all white and I thought those were White Giants but as their feathers come in more, they're not quite white (but not as "buff" as the Chantecler) and they're getting black around their necks so I thought those must be the Wyandottes, leaving me thoroughly confused about these black winged chicks, especially since columbian wyandottes don't have any black on their wings.

    I printed out pictures of what all the different breeds would like like as chicks and as adults and was able to easily identify the rest of the group.

    One of the chicks I thought were White Giants, they were yellow and huge...See the black pin feathers on the back of her neck?

    ...but they're not, because these are the Giants.
