    I picked up four 'three month old hens' this last week from a woman asking for help because her neighbor had a 'chicken eating dog'. She said she had a Dark Brahma, Light Brahma, GLW, and Americauna. I'm pretty sure that the Dark Brahma is actually a Speckled Sussex, it's definitely NOT a Dark Brahma. That didn't surprise me there is a feed store in town notorious for giving people the wrong chicks. I've got a friend who was sold a "Buff Chantecler" I was like well for one Chantecler's don't come in Buff, and two, they don't have feathered feet, so that's probably actually a Buff Cochin...

    So did I get all girls and get the breeds right?
    Here's a group shot of all four, sorry the light was behind me. They're a little skittish still.

    I'll try to get individual shots of the of the GLW and the Easter Egger later today.

    Thanks!

    The 'americauna' is an easter egger, but they all look girly to me too. Pretty ladies!

    The Ameracauna is actually an Easter Egger, but they all look like pullets to me! [​IMG] Hopefully you'll get some colorful eggs!

    I'd watch the Wyandotte... wattles/comb/hackles look rooish... Maybe even the Speckled Sussex...

    But the rest all look like hens!
