    These chickens are 6 weeks old, the mom I am pretty sure is a wellsummer, Father is unknown. Any idea what the father might be? Thank you!

    Could you give us a selection of what hens you have? I say possible wyandotte but that's just a literal guess.

    On the last picture the chick on the left looks like a Silver Wyandotte and the one on the right could be a Barred rock. Could you get closer pictures of their comb and body?

    The guy I got the eggs from had 5 hens and a rooster, he thought the hens were wellsummers (all 5 were the same breed), but had no Idea what the rooster was. I noticed the roster had green iridescent feathers When they hatched there was 2 yellow chicks and 2 black chicks, the yellow chicks look like the one on the left in the second pic, the black chics look like the first pic. I will try to get better pictures tomorrow. The one on the right in the second pic is a barred rock, I got somewhere else.

    The first one... a Heinz 57. :/

    The second one I say Easter Egger because of the slate legs.
