    I just adopted three pullet girls. They are siblings. Two are white and one is black with white bars on the neck.( in back of picture) They are small but much bigger than a bantam. Any ideas on their breed? These are my first chickens. They came from the feed store and had no backround info. They are not laying yet.

    Could you get more photos? It is difficult to see from just that, but the one behind the white one looks like an Easter Egger.

    White one may be a White Rock, and the one behind it is likely a barnyard mix or Easter Egger.

    Thank you for the help. After some more studying I think they could be Easter Eggers. They are siblings should be same thing? Might know more deffinatly when they start laying

    I don't think you mentioned siblings, I could understand if they came from different parents, not the same one.

    The thing is, with birds it's hard to be sure a clutch is always biologically related. Broody hens are notorious for stealing other hen's eggs. Having more than one rooster means you'll likely have more than one father. Without knowing more it's impossible to say if the birds are actually related or not, but I'm thinking no. The difference in body and leg color is too varied, plus I think I'm seeing different comb styles.
