    We hatched these in our second grade classroom from "mystery eggs" provided by a very nice extension agent who didn't know what kind of chickens they were from. Can you please help identify?

    Thanks in advance for any help you can give me. I don't even know if they are hens or roosters!

    well one is a barred rock (the black and white one), kinda looks like a roo. I think the on in the 3rd pic is a delaware. and the brown one is a silkie mix?

    More info on my "mystery chicks" that might be of some help...
    The brown one hatched from a tiny white egg. The two white ones were from cream colored medium sized eggs and the black one was from a med. size light brown egg.
    Thanks for the input so far!

    The brown one does have five toes on ONE of its feet. Any idea what it could be a cross with?

    I can only identify one of your chickens - the grey & white one is a barred rock and it's a roo.

    Are those feathered feet on the brown one? You have yourself a designer chicken there!! Agree silkie mix on it, as the tophat looks silkie. I guess it could be Cochin/Polish...How cute!

    I'm definitely going roo on the barred one- though I'm not sure if it's a Barred Rock or a Sex Link- looks like Rock.

    Not sure about the others.
