    I bought these eggs off CL, the guy had over 75 breeds, said they were show. He had a friend meet me half way, eggs were written on, now I'm trying to figure out what breeds based on the abbreviations.

    Any guesses?
    SCLBL
    SL
    SC
    RCBL
    SCA


    Thanks everyone :)

    SCLBL - Single Comb Brown Leghorn - don't know what that extra L is though.
    SL - Silver Leghorn
    SC - Silver Cochin
    RCBL - Rose Comb Brown Leghorn
    SCA - ?

    The "L" in SCLBL stands for "Light," so it's a Single Comb Light Brown Leghorn.
    I agree on the others.
    And I'm not sure either what the SCA stands for... Silver Campine maybe?
    Did you see pictures of his stock? If you did, were there any that looked like these? http://feathersite.com/Poultry/CGA/Camp/BRKCampine.html

    Unfortunately I didn't, he said he was paying someone to put up a website of all the awards they've won. He said he didn't own a computer or anything and he apologized. LOL.

    I'm not planning on showing or anything, just like a variety of breeds :)

    SCA could possibly be Single Combed Ancona

    I agree that the last is most likely Silver Campine. Your friend seems to have focused on white egglayers, so it would sebe in keeping with the theme as Campines lay white. They are also favorites for showchickens as well.

    Your best bet is to get a hold of the seller.

    SCLBL - Single Comb Light Brown Leghorn
    RCBL - Rose Comb Black Leghorn
    SL - could be Silver Leghorn but they didn't state comb type like RCSL or SCSL
    SCA - Single Comb Ancona

    I asked for white eggs he said he had tons of brown eggs as well, but I had trouble candeling my last brown batch so I opted for white this time.
