Trying to sort out if I have a couple Barnevelders mixed in with my Bielefelders. Does anyone recognize these chickens? TIA!

The bottom photo looks like it may be a Bielefelder, but the other chicks don't look like Barnevelders or Bielefelders. If all the chicks pictured came from the same hatch, I would doubt the purity of any of them. 

Busy working on creating a Double Silver Laced bird with a Wyandotte build and high egg production while loving my assortment of laying hens, cats, and mountain views!

Thank you for commenting! I'm hoping to hear back from the breeder soon. I'm wondering what kind of chickens I have now, lol.

Wildchickenmom,

 

I agree; the bottom pic strongly appears to be a Bielefelder roo; the others don't grab me either way.  It's tough to try to figure out what mix a particular chicken (especially chicks) might be, so unless you're certain what the breeder had in a given pen, you're kinda up that proverbial creek.

 

I'm getting started trying to establish my own line of black double-laced Barnevelders continuing with Johan's line from a closed flock.  Kinda hard to find, though, especially avoiding dilution. If any of you know of a breeder with closed flocks who can ship chix or eggs, I'd appreciate a heads-up :P .  I'll probably start a new thread in the next day or two looking for them.

Would love to improve this breed. The Barnevelder was my first choice for a breed to raise but they are hard to find.
Got some hatching eggs on eBay and hatched out 3 chicks the first hatch, bought more and got 1 the second hatch.

Here are the eggs I bought and the chicks that resulted.

Max is 2 years old now and I haven't posted a new picture of him here in over a year I think, so here is a new one!

Dennis, I've seen hatching eggs for sale on eBay but they are pricey. I like the silver laced also.
