    I bought a number of chicks from a breeder and now I cant figure out what chicks are the blue laced red wyandottes and which are the welsummers. I also purchased Penedesencas that look a lot alike the other two breeds right now. I think I can exclude the Penedesencas because they have the blue legs and the Wyandottes and Welsummers are supposed to be yellow legs. Anyway, this pic shows the ones with the yellow legs. I think the one on the left is the Blue Laced Red Wyandotte (it has a grey/blue sheen) and the other two on the right are Welsummers (except the one on the right has feathered legs?). Any help would be appreciated.

    The center chick is the only chick that looks like a welsummer. Neither Wyandottes or Welsummers are supposed to have feathered shanks, so I'm not sure what the chick on the right is.

    I don't see any BLR wyandottes.
