    It appears based on your list that you are aware of this, but you do have some chickens on your list that are not actually breeds but hybrids. The same hybrids can be marketed by different hatcheries under a variety of labels and some of the names on your list are actually hatchery labels for the same birds. For example Gold Sex Link and Lohman Brown are just two of many hatchery labels for Red Sex Links. Also, Welsummer is misspelled on your list (it's missing the "L." :eek:) You can find an exhaustive list of all the chickens breeds at https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_chicken_breeds.

    This hybrid is also marketed under the label, Dixie Rainbow.

    Thank you! Yes I know I have hybrids on the list and want to eventually put the different names for one bird together.
