    I just got 10 chicks from the hatchery last week and was wondering which were which.

    These are the chicks that were ordered and the number of chicks. Which chicks correspond with which numbered chick above.
    I know # 4 & 9 are the Marans, but I am not sure on the others.

    Blue laced red Wyandotte - 1
    Speckled Sussex - 1
    Welsummer - 1
    Blue Andalusion - 1
    Salmon Faverolle - 1
    Black Copper Marans - 2
    Easter Eggers - 3

    Wow, hard to say but I'm going to guess 1, 2 and 7 are prob. your EE's they have very similar markings to mine. But... I also have an EE that looks like #6.... which ones are the "cheekiest"?

    I also think 3, 8, 10 are the EE. I think 2 is your Welsummer, 7 Speckled Sussex, 6 Salmon Favorelle, 5 Blue Laced Red Wyandotte, 1 Blue Andalusion.

    These are just my opinion!! :)

    I am definitely no expert, but I agree that 3, 8 and 10 are your EEs. Number 7 is a Speckled Sussex as it lacks the puffy cheeks of 3, 8 and 10 and the triangular darker area on it's head is a little better defined. Mine five SS looked just like this when I got them in March, right down to the stance. Number 6 is definitely a Faverolles; I had one of those too. Not sure about the rest as I have not seen chicks in person of those other breeds.

    PS - Love your avatar! :)

    The one that is really stumping me is the Blue Andalusion. I looked up a few pictures of them online, and none of my chicks seem to look like the andalusions I have seen. #3 is probably the closest as it is the only one that has some blue in it, but it still looks a lot different then the pictures I have seen.

    I think #3 is one of your EE's because of the puffy cheeks that's why I think it's #1. :)
