    Bought these at a local farm...they got from McMurray's...and they were purchased as the "rainbow layer mix". Any ideas what they might be?


    [​IMG]This is the runt, yellow legs, 4 toes. the top of the head has a brown stripe, kinda like a chipmunk

    [​IMG] green legs and toes, 4 toes, has a tanish outline on the nostrils
    [​IMG]yellow legs and toes, 4 toes

    [​IMG]an ariel shot in the brooder...the two dark ones are olive eggers

    [​IMG]grey legs with yellow toes, 4 toes, beak is gray-yellowish

    Any ideas?

    Comb type would help. With the info provided, I'd guess:

    1) brown Leghorn (there are several other possibilities)
    2) green legs = likely EE
    3) white Leghorn
    4) ? Something blue

    I thought leghorn on...Delaware for the yellow one...

    Looks like I've got at least ONE blue egg layer :)

    The first one could be a speckled Sussex-stripe at the corner of the eye and brown on top of the head.
    Thought the third might be Delaware.

    Sussex have white skin, this one has yellow. There are a ton of chicks that can be chipmunk-striped. Partridge Rock is another possibility but they tend to be large even as chicks and the OP said this one is dainty which screams Leghorn to me.

    The yellow one could also be a white Rock... really hard to say at this early stage.

    what about a silver Campine for this one? They are getting older and feathering out...the feathering is very "barred" like:
