    I received 6 welsummers and some rainbow layers. I kept thinking that they had thrown in an extra welsie but now I think she maybe one from the rainbow layers. Maybe a brown leghorn?? This would be the only one I've ID'd as being a white egglayer.

    Brn. Leghorn?? (2 pics) See how her tail feathers are shorter and more upright?

    and Miss Welsie (maybe a mister welsie!)

    She is not a brown leghorn :|

    I am not sure what she is. A partridge Rock maybe?

    Looks like a hybrid. Probably a partridge rock and a new hampshire cross. Brown egg layer.

    Thanks, guys~ I'll have to research partridge rock now!

    I don't think I have any white egg layers now~~maybe I should try to hatch some! [​IMG]

    Looks like a Partridge Rock to me. I doubt you'd get a Partridge Rock/R I Red cross from a hatchery.
