    I was at my local TSC and they had 2 unknown breeds of pullets on display. Does anyone know of a visual guide that i could use while in the store to identify them?

    Smart phone? The store I'm getting mine at has a handy poster so you can see what the chicks and adults look like, but that didn't stop me from obsessively googling each breed I got.

    I was trying to find one for this same reason as well. I didn't find anything, but I would be interested to see if anyone else comes up with anything, so in for later. [​IMG]

    I'll gladly take a pic of the one they have at the feed store when I pick up my babies this afternoon.

    I posted this elsewhere but these are the unknown pullets at my TSC. The woman there thinks they are easter eggers

    They could possibly be Welsummers. My local TSC carried these the last time I was there. Here is a picture that you can use to compare:

    It's not an EE because his feet are yellow. I'll guess brown leghorn.

    Haha.. Last year when I first got started, some of the chicks were known Buff Orpintions. I got three of them and three black chicks. Took me a month or more to figure out they were black sex links. Glad I got them.
