    the thrid from bottom is a turken, Second too the bottom is polish and the last pic could be cochins

    Not sure on the rest.

    I agree that 3 photo from bottom Turken, 2nd photo from bottom Polish, last photo has some possible Cochins, but the pale yellow birds look as if they have a crest which would not be Cochin...may be Sultans if they have some beard.

    Chick 4th from bottom looks like it has ear tufts? I can't think that Cackle carries Araucanas, but if it doesn't have a tail (feel for the little nub that should be at the end of the pelvis if there is a tail bone), it might be an Araucana as some of the hatcheries are getting some mixes in (Murray McMurray sells an Ameraucana/Araucana mix that is tufted...maybe Cackle has something like that).

    A lot of possibilities for the others...and they can be anything as this is a surprise box. I couldn't get Cackle's site to load tonight, but I can see from the internet cache of the site that their rare breeds have a lot of different birds...and a surprise box will be a mix of just about anything from common to rare...so that makes identification pretty hard for some of these.

    Chicks #4 and #5 from top *might* be Spitzhaubens

    Chick #10 from top might be a Speckled Sussex

    My guesses for tonight

    Well I got the turken and the polish correct. The chicks with the black fluff(muff) around their necks looks like a rare breed I have seen on another thread. We all thought they looked like monks.

    It certainly is an interesting assortment - hope you will get some girls out of this. They are adorable.
