    The black one on the second picture look like Astralorp, but on the third picture the chick look like Ameraucana or Easter Egger, because it looks like little muffs start to develop on her face. Is it a same bird, second and third picture?

    Do you have ANY information about where you got them, what breeds are possible, etc? Blue/black/splash projects seem to be very popular these days and at this age, the chicks could be absolutely anything.

    It'll be much easier to help when they're older, then, but there's no way to tell if they didn't include a list of possibilities. The first one appears to have feathered legs, so may be a cochin. It may help with some of the females once they start laying, as well.

    Yes, they are still so young to tell what they are, especially little babies. Wait 2-3 weeks and post pictures again, they will have more clues. Did hatchery provide a list what was included in assortment?

    Blue Cochin, Self Blue OEGB, Australorp, not sure about the itty bitty chicks.
