    I ordered orpington hatching eggs from my pet chicken and 2 mystery chickens hatched out of my eggs. I need help in determining the breed of these chickens they are 12 weeks old. Here are some pics of one of them.

    Thats a Wyandotte. Either it's a very poor silver laced or a silver laced mixed with another color.

    A brahma, not a Wyandotte. It's hard to see a clear pic of the comb.

    I just loaded another picture. Is that a rose comb or a pea comb?

    feather legged...Brahma...
    If it would have been a Wyandotte it would be clean legged and Columbian for color....

    Brahma for sure. Poor color however. Perhaps a Dark Brahma or a mix of Light and Dark??

    Typically nice friendly birds and a great addition to any coop [​IMG]

    A male light brahma for sure. I agree with the light and dark brahma mixed.

    Thank you all for your help. I called MPC and let them know, and they agree that the two eggs must have been mismarked and they are light brahmas. They are refunding the price of the two hatching eggs. Now I need to find homes for these two light brahma cockerels.
