    Ok, I need help identifying some chicks from a hatchery surprise. I want to sell them but I don't want to misrepresent them.

    Two are kind of a dark brown? Leghorns?

    And then 5 of these, assorted pullets and Roos- welsummers??

    They are not brown leghorns as brown leghorns have white ears! :) Most likely Welsummers if that's the breed your ordered. I'm not familiar with welsummers so that is just an assumption.

    It's cackles hatchery surprise so I don't know what they sent, the welsummers I'm pretty sure of, bc I've gotten them before. The darker ones I didn't know. I know leghorns have white ears, but do they have them this young or they develop later?

    Ya know what, your right, they probably wouldn't show up yet. Gonna look again! Now looking again I suppose it's possible for them to be BL , how old are they again?

    5 weeks... I need to go look at them again, I wasn't thinking to look at differences in the ears.
