    I got these two girls at about a month old under the impression they were a Rhode island and a New Hampshire. Now that they have colored out, I'm thinking both are BSL or some other mix. Any opinions ?

    The one on top in the photo is a Golden Laced Wyandotte. I'm not sure about the other one. Could you get a side-profile photo of it?

    The second hen appears to be a Welsummer.

    Wow, I searched through different breed photos and couldn't find anything that matched them. After searching for Golden Laced Wyandotte, and Welsummer, I have to agree with you lol. Thanks a lot for the help Bantam, and Wyandotte !

    I agree with the others. You have a Golden Laced Wyandotte and a Welsummer. You should get some lovely chocolate eggs from your Welsummer. :eek:)
