    So, admittedly I didn't check out the breeder that well as far as breeding lines, etc. but that doesn't matter too much anyway. I wanted decent layers and breeds that are at least usually not aggressive. I *thought* I was getting barred rocks, easter eggers, one buff orp and one SLW.

    I know the EEs are a mix of whatever, and my BO looks like one.. but the barred rocks and SLW I am wondering about. I'm not disappointed if they're probably not purebred, just curious. Any help appreciated :love 20181102_150138.jpg 20181102_150046.jpg 20181102_145210.jpg 20181102_145200.jpg 20181102_145820.jpg 20181102_145836.jpg 20181102_145804.jpg 20181102_145107-1.jpg

    The SLW looks correct, right leg, color, and all, just probably hatchery quality.

    Thanks! Her feathers looked more laced when we got her a few weeks ago. She's still pretty and she's our sweetest and most docile chick!

    The top 4 photos are either Dominique or Barred Rock! That other white and black is an SLW! The 3 in the last photo are EE!

    Thank you! I wasn't sure on the barred rock mostly because of the leg coloring, but wondered if they were crossed with something or if they were dominiques. I just find it interesting learning about different breeds and how to identify them. :)

    The barred ones are cuckoo marans. Barred rocks have yellow legs and dominiques have rose combs.

    Provided they truly have pink legs (and it's not just the lighting messing with me), they're Cuckoo Marans instead of Barred Rocks. Everybody else is the Silver Wyandotte, Buff Orpington, and Easter Egger you hoped for. :)

    Thank you! Yes, they do have pink legs. Not even a little bit yellow. :)
