What kind of chickens do I have?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I bought two chickens about 4 weeks back, and I am not certain what kind of chickens these are... Please see the attached pictures.

Any ideas?

Where did you get them? My uncle has a couple of these mystery "Welsummers," which turned out to be a strange type of Easter Egger mix that lays green eggs.

I bought them from a lady in east TN. She claimed they are OE, but I have noticed that they lack the typical pea comb that a OE would have. They are now about 20 weeks old, and look to be developing a straight comb and wattles.

I am hopeful that they lay olive eggs... Only time will tell.

Thanks for the feedback.

You're very welcome! In that case, I would guess that what you've got is OEs. :D They're probably Welsummer and Cream Legbar crosses to create olive layers.
