    They are about a month old, I got them with a huge batch of full size and bantams, I thought they were wellsummers until today, when I saw the chipmunk head next to one of these. Any help would be much appreciated. They are Pullets and about 6 weeks old. The first pic is grey with a white ring around the neck it also had a few extra feathers coming off the tail. The last two are the same bird. It seems to have an undercoat of red with grey overcoat.

    They look like Easter Eggers, the muffed checks that are on the first one is a common in the breed. they came in every color that a chicken can have, and have green legs.

    The pics don't enlarge when clicked, not sure why. Can you get better pics, profile shots of the birds standing naturally? What hatchery did they come from, and what did you order?

    I ordered from my local chicken lady, only the last batch I got there at sorting time, it was bantam day ( although there were many full size breeds. I got slightly carried away in the mist of all the fuzzy peeps and just did the yes, give me two of those and two of those lol. I got 26 chickens that day lol. Plus some more for friends and family. Guessing I'll have to play wait and see. I'll get better pics tomorrow maybe. I think one might be an Easteregger but the red/grey one has no muffs and yellow legs.....oh well, I love a surprise breed!:lol:
