    Have an assortment that's a couple months old - three of 8 remaining that look alike. They started white with black backs, very energetic (ok Leghorn type spazzes :) ) - they've turned into black with white splotches. I have a short video but can't post anything to link it at youtube (name is under JanH1961 it's under recent uploads) - she is in the center and the little cockerel is behind her drinking...I'm about 90% sure they're Anconas as nothing else "fits" - but wanted to see if anyone else could confirm this or ??? They're about Leghorn size - there's a trio I'm going to keep but I want to make sure what they are. Frustrating to not be able to ask what I joined to ask - and other chicken sites don't answer at all.

    Yes - ty - the pullet (well the one visible here) is on the right side, walking away then sits down 1/2 way down. The cockerel is behind her (comb difference is clear) drinking

    Also there's another 'trio' I suspect are straight comb brown leghorns - they're just very slightly larger than those - nowhere near as big as Americaunas or RI Reds etc.
