    Can anyone help me identify the breeds and confirm gender for these three? I "thought" I was hatching cream legbar and swedish flowers, but I do not believe they are. They all have slate colored legs but at hatch they had yellow legs or yellow/grey.

    At hatch vs. 6 weeks:

    Lemon (obvious rooster!), hatched from a small blue egg, thought it was a cream legbar, he's pretty small, and his ear lobes have started turning a bluish color:

    Luna (hatched from a brown egg, was supposed to be swedish flower) and do you think a pullet?:

    Brownie (from brown egg, also was supposed to be Swedish Flower) and maybe a pullet???

    Lemon is defiantly a cockerel. He could be a legbar cross, but defiantly not pure cream legbar. Luna and Brownie are most likely pullets, it is possible they are Swedish flower cross, but unfortunately they are not pure. Swedish Flowers should have yellow legs.
