New Chicks! Need Help Identifying!
Featured Stories on BackYard Chickens
Were the eggs purchased from a hatchery, breeder or backyard flock? What color(s) were the eggs? Your suspected Araucana/Ameraucana does not have the leg color to be a pure bred bird of either breed, but could be a mix - is it the feathering of the face that is leading you in that direction and, if so, can you get a better shot showing that?
*Correction Wheaton, not Welsummer
The rooster (father of all the chicks) is a Wheaton. Hens are Americana (mix including white), Silver-laced Wyandotte and Cuckoo Maran (not any of the chicks in the pictures). The feather legged chick (#1) has a single comb with feathers coming in white, the second chick has rose comb and the third has a pea comb so I think its mom was a Wyandotte. I appreciate any other insights!
