    Hi everyone! So I won these chicks from an auction from Greenfire Farms.

    I was sent a list of all possible chicks but counted three extra. I have no idea what these three can be.
    The breeds that I received were: a Silver Spitzhauben, 3 Orusts, 4 Svart Hona's, a Marsh Daisy, 2 East Frisian Gulls, a Lyonnaise, and 2 white Pavlovskaya's.

    Then there's these three..

    What can they be? I looked everywhere on their website but I have no idea..

    They look like Welsummers to me.

    Hmm! Maybe! Greenfire Farms don't have Welsummers on their website but I can see the relation.
    All three of them have a that black little line on their faces though.
    The other two have more black on their faces. I'll try to get some pictures!

    Here's a picture of the second one.
    The third looks similar!

    They all have such interesting masks. I also have Bielefelders, Cream Legbars, and Swedish Flower Hens but they do not look like this.

    It's hard to tell for sure from the pictures - are those combs flat? Do any of them have singles? They look kind of like teeny tiny rose combs from here.

    Honestly how hard would it be for them to label 3 little chicks????

    I'm not that experienced, so I have no idea. They still haven't developed combs yet so I can't tell!


    Yeah ): They actually ended up giving me extra's.. These three are not even on the list of what I was supposed to get. They're completely mystery chicks!
    And although they're great - they really are, it can be a bit hard to contact them sometimes. They seem to only answer e-mails Monday through Thursday and only in the early morning. I understand though since it take a lot of work to run a farm.

    Even a very young chick should have a minuscule comb on its head. If the area is only flat, that's probably rose or similar. If there is a tiny nub without much shape it's closer to pea. Single combs look like those of adults, but much smaller and yellowish, sometimes flopped over.

    Actually, all my chicks are 6 days and all of them have flat areas. The one's that are a bit older have combs. I think it takes at least a week to two for combs to start to develop. I also googled pictures of chicks and it seems that very young ones are all flat.
