Hi everyone!!

My babies are all fluffed up and running around and being stupid cute, but I am just DYING to know what colors they will be as adults. They were sold to me as assorted colors with many lavender and blue traits. Is there anyone out there who can ID these fluffy cuties?!?!? 2 photos of each bird, 6 birds total, I hope the file names show up, each chick has a number.

I'm actually shocked that I got more responses on Facebook than here for guesses... nobody wants to try?

I have determined that the pale silver ones with the all yellow heads are porcelain, and the dark one is likely a mille fleur, maybe a blue mille fleur.

The only 2 I have no guesses on so far are the solid gray with the head spot and dark back and the silver and yellow one with the V on its forehead. My stab in the dark is blue quail and lavender quail.

I had never even heard of D'anvers chickens until you posted that you were trying to hatch some. I had to look them up. Maybe most people don't know about them or don't have them? :idunno
I guess! I love them, they're so cute and have adorable personality. Quail is their most common color. D'uccles are a more popular breed of Belgian bantam for some reason, but I do not care for those wildly feathered feet. When I found d'anvers I thought I'd found the perfect chicken. Now I know about the barbu de watermael and only wish somebody other than greenfire farms had them because $50 per chick is gunpoint robbery lol.

..,
Probably because people on facebook are much more likely to say something when they know nearly nothing about it.

Your chicks are adorable.
I have no idea what colors that breed comes in much less what these might be when grown... other than from this thread.

I suppose that's true, I got my guess for the dark one from someone who raised mille fleur d'uccles.
