right? That is why I am thinking it might be a brown leghorn
They are really small, they seem to all have single combs. But they are so tiny I might change my mind in a week or so.
Thanks for looking.
I take it they won't just tell you what they sent you? I am sorry, but after looking at their website they carry too many breeds to say for sure what they sent you. Especially as they do carry breeds like Swedish Flower Hens that are a land race that come in a very wide array of plumage. They also have cross breeds like the Olive Eggers that can look like one of the parent breeds. Please post more photos as the chicks get larger and start to feather out. The nice thing about your chicks is you have a fun puzzle of figuring out what you have. The truth is with the possibility of mixed breed chicks you may never know for sure exactly what you have.
No, they don't tell you what they sent. Thanks for looking and guessing.
Hopefully a few more people will look and see something they recognize.
The little black one is a barred rock and the very light one a white rock I think, the rest could be many others
True, but not impossible. They do carry Legbars, and if they had extra's they could of popped one in. This is suppose to be a mix of all pullets.
Thanks BBmama. I was thinking the black and white one was a barred rock, but it seemed more white than most of the pictures I could find. I'm sure there are variations, you probably confirmed that.
The white ones, I was wondering if it was a white rock. The leghorn pictures all have very yellow legs, and my chicks legs are more grey/pink. Not yellow at all.
Thanks for looking!
That is why I think it could be a Swedish flower hen. The leg color is all wrong for a white rock. Also the black chick with the white spot also matches the cuckoo Marans chicks. They look just the same and the photo of them on their site doesn't show any leg feathering. It isn't uncommon for cuckoo Marans in this country to not have feathered legs. Also the olive eggers are a blue/green egg breed crossed with a Marans. So many of the chicks come out looking like Marans chicks.
