Probably really easy for you all to spot, this is all still new to me.... and they all lay brown eggs

#1.


#2.


#3.


#4.
(these black ones have white or dark earlobes.)


I'm thinking a few are some brahma mix, without the feather legs? The black maybe a jersey or australorp?

Thank for spotting them for me, its probably easy for you pros!!!

the only brown layer I know that has white lobes is the penedesenca, but leg color looks wrong..
Maybe they are all mixes


#2 looks like a gold lakenvelder, again wrong leg color though...

yeah, the more I look, they look similar to some breeds but part is completely off....I am voting mixes

i figured mixed, but was wondering what kind of mixes. No big deal, was just hoping someone would know. =O) LOL. Eventually when my youngsters get bigger, i will assort my flock by breed, so they will all be purebred!

Quote:#4 could be a cross with australorp(brown egg layer), since the others have red lobes...

The 1st one looks a lot like mine except mine lay white eggs. Mine are a result of a Blue Andalusian crossed with mixed breed hens.

thanks for the answers. They have pretty markings, and they are pretty little, look like a bantam breed.
