    I got the Ornamental Layer Collection from McMurray on March 2nd, that would make my babies just about 8 weeks old. I need some identification on a few....if I could please ask some experts for some help?
    I thought this one was a Langshan....but it's got yellow legs? And it's feathering may be a

    When this one was little, I thought she was an EE, she had somewhat puffy cheeks, but now she doesn't....what is she? I know that she is a hen.

    I think this one is a I correct? And a hen?

    I have more, but I'll save them for another time! Thanks for your help!

    The first one might be a Black Cochin and the second one might be a Brown Leghorn.

    The white one is an EE. We had an EE exactly like that from McMurray.

    Quote:White one is actually an EE, I have a straight on pic of her, and you can see her cute puffy cheeks....
    Her name is Erica....

    Question though...the pic of the first one, the black? cochin? He was fluffy and brown as a baby, so I thought he was a Partridge Cochin...but now I don't know! He has minimal feathering on his legs...I am relatively certain that he is a roo....but as long as he behaves himself, I'll keep him.

    Thanks for all the help!

    I think the first one is a black cochin pullet. Not enough comb and wattles to be a roo at 7 or 8 weeks old.

    The others are a brown leghorn and a langshan. Cute babies!

    I have blue cochins that are about that age and I cannot even see their feet-at all. Possibly a Brahma?
