Think the farm supply was wrong....

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
[IMG][IMG][IMG]I bought 4 chicks. Receipt says buff cochin, black sex link, speckled sussex and brown leghorn. Effie I believe is a speckled sussex. She was chipmunk colored as a chick which adds up. Lottie appears to be black sex link. Eggie is obviously a cochin. Feathered feet from a 3 day old chick. Nobody looks like brown leghorn. Maybe Effie? She sure looks sussex though. Dottie I think is a Dominique. Her legs aren't fully yellow but maybe cause she's still young? She has a different comb too. Is the flat one a rose comb? I read Dominique have rose combs. Any ideas? The photos are Effie(brown) and Dottie (Black and white)

Heres a photo of all 4 together for comparison. Also, Dottie is the smalkest of the 4, Eggie and Lottie are biggest.

First photo is a Dominique. Yes, that is a rose comb.

Second photo is a speckled Sussex.

On the last photo, do you have a better photo of the dark chicken? It may be a sex link... The gold one is probably the buff Cochin.

The yellow is a buff cochin. Black is sex link. Just really wanted to clear up the mystery of Dottie! Definately not a brown leghorn! I've been researching Dominique and I'm excited that seems to be her. Sounds like they are great chickens.
