    I got these chicks from the local Tractor Supply. I asked what breed they are, and the lady responded, "Pullet, they are good egg layers." I nodded. Any of you have an idea what breed they are? LOL

    I'm not sure. Does it have feathered feet?

    the pattern kind of looks like a welsummer but it is hard to tell until they are out of their chick stage.

    No, no feathers on the feet. They are about 3 weeks old here. I have one Buff Orpington that is a week or so behind them. They grow off fast, compared to the Buff.

    Could they be Cornish X? I hope not. They sold them to me as egg layers, granted, the sales lasy had no clue what she was doing, but they came from the egg layer bin.

    Nope, not Cornish Cross. Maybe Buff Orpingtons?

    Cannot be BO the coloring is all wrong on the wings.
    Looking like it is going to be a pretty bird regardless.
