    Hi all, i am new to this chicken keeping business, and new this forum, so I hope someone with a little more knowledge can help!!. I recently bought a selection of chicks/pullets from a local breeder. He claims that these are appenzeller chicks, now i'm no expert but i think he was very wrong! I do have another appenzeller pullet and there are no similarities!, and ideas would be helpful!!

    i agree with you, might be a cross but certainly not pure, and the last two pictures look like a cockeral not pullets.just my opinion[​IMG]

    That was kind of my opinion too, the only breed that looks similar is the barnevelder but i couldn't be sure.

    I though they were a pair too. The minute I got them home I said they were a pair, I do hate people that con others, it's not fair. I don't mind what I have but it's good to know what you are dealing with as they are all so different, and mixing cockerels is a tricky business!
