    We ordered chicks from McMurray Hatcherys. We ordered the Rainbow layer mix. I am thinking I have a few Silver Spangled Hamburgs. Any thoughts on the others?

    1. The ones on top and middle left I think are the Silver Spangled Hamburgs.

    the black chick might be a black Austalorp and the others easter eggers (maybe)

    I'm not an expert at all, but #3 looks like my "bonus" golden-penciled hamburg chick. But, I'm just guessing. I just love this forum. I'm a gardener by profession, though and would do better with pictures of plants and weeds.

    I HATCHED FROM MY CHICKENS WHICH ARE 100% SILVER LACED WYANDOTTES AND THAT "MIKE TYSON TATOO" FACE AND THE STRIPE DOWN THE MIDDLE IS A SILVER LACED WYANDOTTE CHICKEN AND I AM POSITIVE.

    THAT IS PICTURE 2 CHICK ON THE MIDDLE LEFT.

    Silver laced wyandotte chicks can be from a darker gray to a lighter gray (which is that chick) and it is probably a boy because i have found the lighter chicks have been mainly boys.

    google silver laced wyandotte chicks and you will see that in fact I DO know exactly what i am talking about!


    Have a wonderful time with your chicks.
