    Howdy, I am new to this forum and also raising Layers. Well long story short [​IMG] we were given 7 birds and 4 of them are Leghorn Roo's (pretty sure) but I am not sure what the Hens are of the Multi white colored Roo is, Please help [​IMG] I just can't find what they are. I think the Hens are Welsummers. Thanks
    [​IMG] [​IMG] He does have some feathers on his legs, but they got wet, & his legs are yellow/orangish.
    [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] Here are the Hens, what cha think? Welsummers?

    Now wondering what the other Roosters are?

    Can't answer on the hens, would need better pictures. The other roosters don't appear to be leghorns either, just to let you know [​IMG]. The rooster in question, I believe looks like a Brahma cross. Can't answer on what with, perhaps someone else will come along.

    Quote:Pictures are fine for me, I just can't really see the head conformation. Comb type? Leg color?

    Quote:They look like crosses I think, some will probably come along and say EE, which is quite possible. But man I can't help but continue thinking the front rooster in that photo looks similar to a Kraienkoeppe! He does have some imperfections, but that is a little common with the ones here in the States. I think it would be safe to assume he is the same as the hens, which also I thought resembled the United States Kraienkoeppe's a bit, but they wouldn't be pure. Others can't really help on, look like crosses to me too. But I could be wrong on that.

    He definatley look like he's got wyandette in him. I had a boy that was a full wyandette and he looked alot like him. But he looks a mix to me. The others look like they have patridge in them..but mixed??? Hard to say??? Thats my guess's??
