    Can anyone name this breed of chicken? My husband just grabbed them from the feed store as the last two that have been sitting for awhile... unfortunately the worker didn't recall the breed and was eager to close up shop. I can call tomorrow and try to get a breed but figured I would ask here too. Thanks a bunch [​IMG]

    All I can think of is Easter egger, from the pic. What color legs do they have? And what style combs?

    Very creamy colored legs... more on the white side than yellow. Sorry, I'm not familiar with comb styles but what is showing on them already is very narrow with distinct peaks.

    Doesn't sound like EE.

    You may have to wait until they feather in better to get a good answer. Right now they really don't look like anything I can think of.

    Could be Easter Eggers. Look like pea combs to me.

    I was soooo wrong on the leg color [​IMG] It's more greenish for now. I called the feed store, he said Wyandotte...so I'm guessing it's silver laced? I have 3 blue laced Wyandotte absolutely beautiful coloring so I will be happy if these two are silver laced

    For the comb, they are pretty young but maybe single comb or Pea comb..... I can't tell yet

    Not Wyandottes. They have rose combs and yellow legs.

    with the green legs, I'm back to EE. they're clean faced, but I'm really not sure what else they could be.

    Green legs I'd say EE, all my hatchery EE always had green legs. Some have muffs, some don't. I have a pretty one that looks sorta like a golden laced wyondotte no muff, and another is a small buff colored hen with no muff that lays olive eggs.
