    These were males added for warmth. Nobody has feathers on their feet.

    3 is either a welsummer or brown leghorn. You will have to wait until it is older to tell for sure

    I think the last one is a leghorn because I have prize winning first place purebreed Welsummers and they are darker in color than that one. Unless they are from a hatchery, because then anything is possible lol[​IMG]

    They said they were added for warmth. I would say it from a hatchery, because breeders usually never add extra chicks for warmth, they make you buy a heat pack or reach a minimum for body heat. A lot of hatchery stock welsummers are lighter then they should be. Hatcheries don't breed to the SOP
