    [​IMG]I started calling this trio Anconas when they arrived because they looked like Ancona chicks but they don't match the picture anymore. This is my first batch of chickens and I'm a little obsessed with identifying them. They are only 8 weeks old now and one has turned out to be a roo. What do you guys think? (Obviously not the white one on the right)

    Close, clear, full body, standing, broadside pictures would be best for an accurate identification.

    Could be Anconas. Can't see the earlobes very good. Are they white?

    The white earlobes pretty much narrow it down to Anconas. I'll do some more thinkin on it but nothin else is jumpin out at me.
