i think the ones with fluffly legs may be pekins.
silkie chicks usually have fluffy head- do they have 5 toes? sorry cant help with the others lol

Didnt think of pekins. Dont have 5 toes so i guess that sorts that out. have just email the lady who i got the eggs off so she will email me the breeds that were in the pen.

Good idea to contact the breeder. Hope you discover their secret identities soon. :D
