    Pullet- she has her neck stretched out, she's a flightly bird so she spazzed when I started blinding her with a camera.


    All three are April hatches, all came out of regular brown eggs. All have pale white legs, the roos have orange flecking on their necks(mixes most likely).

    All three look like mixes like you would get from a Barred rooster on some other non barred color. Not exactly sure what breeds would have been involved though, I would guess a Barred Rock rooster on hens of a white legged breed since yours have white leggs.

    Hah I didnt even think about Marans, that would be more likely that a rock since they have white legs and the hens are more of a cuckoo pattern.

    The man I got the eggs from had marans, the hen looks just like hatchery stock marans, she's unusually large compared to others her age. Roos have to be BR or marans mix like what was said, but he was more into different breeds so more likely marans x with who knows what, the orange flecks still have me baffled.

    Thanks for the input, open to more guesses!
