    Hi! This pullet is 9 weeks old from either the Hoover's Rare Breed assortment or the Colored Egg Layer assortment. I was thinking Olive Egger but Welsummer may be a possibility? Any IDs on breed?

    I think you could be right about OE... not Welsummer as they have straight combs and we should be able to make it out by now.

    I do believe some hatcheries are using Welsummer to make their crosses.

    Looks like you got a fun group there! :love

    Thanks! I checked and they do use Welsummer in one of their OE crosses. So maybe that's it!
    Thanks! We love them :love
