    I ordered some chicks from McMurray's and I got them the day right after Memorial Day. I took the pictures on the 19th but will get some newer ones hopefully soon after I get some more camera batteries. I think I have some figured out but not sure. I do know I have some white crested black polish chicks (4 of them) and a Salmon Faverolles (one that is yellow w/ black wings).

    Here is the list of what breeds they might be:
    Sumatras, Dominiques, Golden Laced and Silver Penciled Wyandottes, Silver, Golden, Buff Laced, and White Polish, Golden Campines, Golden Penciled Hamburgs, Silver Penciled Rocks, Partridge, Black, Buff, Blue, & Silver Laced and White Cochins, Araucanas, Dark and Buff Brahmas, Phoenix, Fayoumis, Salmon Faverolles, W. L. Red Cornish, Lakenvelders, Black and White Langshans, Red Caps, Silver Leghorns, Crevecoeurs, Silver Gray Dorkings, Modern BB Red Games, Sultans, Buttercups, & Spanish.

    I am assuming these ones might be Araucanas?

    This one looked like a chip monk but lighter colors compared to the other one.

    Been trying to figure out what this one is since it is cute. Pretty sure it is a rooster due to the size, not afraid, and use to bite when it was only a week old.

    Here's a younger picture of it.
    Is this a W.L. Red Cornish?

    Is this a Sultan? It had the most feathers on its legs out of any of them when we got it and keeps getting more white. Also has 5th toes.

    Here are some group pictures.

    I believe the black/white chicks might be Langshans. They started out with no feathers on their legs but as they got older they started to get them.

    1-4 are Easter Eggers, I believe.

    5 looks like my blue laced red wyandottes when they were young, but I don't see that on your list. What kind of comb does it have?

    Not positive on the others, sorry!

    Here are my guesses



    Buttercup and Phoenix

    ...after that I am no help...LOL

    It would be MUCH easier to help you if you post pics of their combs as well. Many of the breeds listed can be figured out by color AND comb..... many share similar colors and patterns [​IMG]

    You sure have a good variety though! You will have a lovely rainbow flock! [​IMG]

    I'd almost guarantee the ones with the marbled markings on their faces are Buttercups! I've NEVER seen that on an EE.

    And I see straight combs on the other ones in the pics.... and even though that is no guarantee that it's NOT an EE... that's why I'm guessing Phoenix.

    Oh! I was going by the leg coloring partially, too and they look like most EE's I've seen. hehe I'm definitely no expert!

    I agree though that the one looks very BLRW... funny since it's not listed and I don;t see anything else on the list that would be similar [​IMG]

    Me too. Our lone EE looks a lot like her.

    Pretty sure 1,2 and 3 are Golden Campines. I got one free from them this year. Mine is a Rooster and it seems a lot smaller than my Deleware and Red sexlinks.

    First two pictures look identical to my brown leghorn.
