Most of our pullets are easily identified, however there are a few we are unsure about, and wanted more opinions before we sell them! The biggest problem with the breed list is that they include "olive eggers" as a rare breed, which they produce from ameraucana or legbar crossed with marans, so we are not sure what to expect those to look like if we have one. Also swedish flower hens are listed as well.
To start, we have two of these little cuties, trying to figure out if they are dark cornish or barnevelder.
Then there are three of these, I was assuming golden cuckoo marans. Two have feathered legs, one is clean legged. And one, as we can see, has yellow legs. Oops.
Then there's this little one, doesn't match any breed on the list and had feathered shanks so I'm guessing olive egger.
And lastly, this black one which I'm assuming is a poorly colored black copper marans, as she has bits of copper throughout her feathers, but none in her hackle.
Any input or ideas? Sorry for the dim lighting, rather overcast today. I may be able to get better shots tomorrow when the sun comes out.
