    These two girls have me stumped. I got them both from TSC back in the spring and I cannot figure out what breed they are. They both lay brown eggs. The first pic is a front and side shot of the same hen. The other is the only pic I could get because she wouldn't stop moving.

    I think they both may be mixes. The first is a big girl, almost as big as my BA and she has huge feet! The other is my fav I call her color "blue wheaton" I know this is not correct, but I am not sure of another pattern to use to describe her. She is a golden color with flecks of black in her chest along with blue tail feathers. I will try to get some better pics of them. I don't think #1 is a BSL she almost has the pattern of Brown Red. IDK I guess we will just have to guess some more! [​IMG]

    I thought the first one looked like a Welsummer too but Welsummers should lay a VERY dark brown egg close to a Marans and often has dark speckles on it.

    First one can't be a Brown Leghorn because it doesn't have white earlobes. They do look similar though. Sorry, I only know what they're not! [​IMG]

    Quote:I know what you mean! I have been wracking my brain thinking there was some long lost chicken breeds that I didn't know about! LOL The first one I like, but I would like to find out what the second girl is because the pics do not do her justice she is just beautiful. I assumed TSC got them from Ideal and I have searched their site, but no luck. I may e-mail them a pic to see if they can tell me.

    The first one IS A WELSUMMER. IF she is hatchery stock, she may just lay a brown egg or a redish/ purplish brown egg.

    The other chicken has too much of a glare on it for me to tell.

    I have 2 welsummers and 2 partridge rocks. . . . .Your first picture is a welsummer [​IMG]

    I agree with Welsummer for the first one. Her eggs may/will get darker over time. My Welsummer I got in March started laying last month and her eggs are gradually getting darker and shinier.

    The second is hard to tell. A better pic would help.
