My new chicks’ coop isn’t finished yet, but I figured I’d let the older ones go play in it for a while today. Sorry, not the best pics because they’re keeping to one corner in the shade ha.

These four are all over a month old. The woman I got them from was just guessing which breeds they were. The turkens were bred by her, the other two were mail-order eggs. But she had allllot of chicks so let me know if these breeds sound right. They all have pretty pale combs.

1. “Deadpool” - supposed hedemora (smooth, not wooly) the largest. I’m pretty darn sure she’s a girl, but doesn’t hurt to ask. I would guess she’s at least 6 weeks.

2. Turken (but can’t remember what mixed with). No feathers on legs. Biggest comb of all the babies I have right now, but it is light.

3. Turken/Cochin. Black face and feathers on legs.

4. “Belle” - supposed Bielefelder. Again, pretty darn sure she’s a girl but doesn’t hurt to check. Looks a lot like my CCL but with really pretty barring.

Should I be worried about any Roos with this bunch? Do the breeds seem accurate? I’ve really gotta ask about turken #1 ha.

Thanks!

It would be really ridiculous for me if I got a bunch of extra chickens to make up for any Roos this time, and ended up with all pullets 😂😂 other than these four, the only remaining possible Roos are two silkies, unless my feed store ones were sexed wrong by the hatchery 😂😂

Talking with the lady I got them from :) she still thinks the same (hedemora, beileifeilder, Cochin/turkens). The hedemora and beil eggs were from green fire farms, I think.
Here’s a better shot of Deadpool :)

Bielefelders have yellow skin. The chick she's saying is a Biel is not a Biel. That would make me question everything she says.

The Naked Necks could be Cochin mixes. I'm not seeing that though.

Ahhh alright. Yeah she’s a silkie/silkie showgirl breeder, so these are just random “fun” chickens ha.
