    My name is Chicken Little...but what am I?

    The 2 chipmunk ones look like they are Speckled Sussex. Their legs/feet look to be pink not yellow like a Welsummer.

    Molting in April?

    Glad I have this post to look back on. LOL my SS are at it again with their Molting in April. This time I just found it odd because they molted in Sept/Oct too. I guess they just want to have pretty feathers.

    Not sure what I have

    Maybe they have a little Game Bird mixed in them. Some GBs look like Welsummer and Brown Leghorn. It could be the lighting but they look a bit too dark to be Wellies. I am leaning more toward a Brown Leghorn or a mix and that they are still too young for their true earlobe color to be seen.

    Help with breeds please :)

    The chipmunk one could be an EE they don't always have fluffy cheeks. What kind of comb does it have? Single comb yellow feet could be a Welsummer, single comb pink feet could be a Speckled Sussex.

    Any one want to join me in waiting for eggs, posting and comparing notes?

    All 7 of my hens have decided they dont need to lay anymore. I was getting at least 1 egg a day up til the 27th of Jan and then they stopped. I noticed that one of my Wellies is doing a minor spring molt for some reason. She is the same one that did a Spring molt last year too. I am thinking...

    If you find a local feed store you can ask them about when they will be getting their chicks in. I know there is a Wilco in Gig Harbor but that's a bit of a drive from you. We have had good luck with our meat birds from them(at the Kelso Wilco). That is where I will be getting our next batch of...
