Meeker, Ok 20+chicken years
These two cuties were purchased with a mix of Austrolorps, NHR, BR, Minorcas and something called Ideal 236 Leghorns.

Then this baby doesn't seem to be Aussie, BR or Minorca. Any ideas?
The feathers coming in are black with a little brown streak in each feather. Her face is brown. Also seen in "group picture" below

The Ideal 236 Leghorns appear to have some brown and black feathers...is this typical?

Here are some photos of the rest of this brood....totals 43 which include the only one I hatched which is an EE cross.

Any comments would be appreciated.

Blue or black cochins for those two and the lone black one with the red around the face, is that the one you were talking about? If so, it is not an Aussie for sure but not sure what it is...a brown leghorn maybe?

Go to Ideals website and look around I think they have baby pictures with the breeds.
