    [​IMG]I have this chicken and another that is more brown than gray but has the same markings. I haven't been able to find any information on what breed they might be.

    Given the yellow legs, I'm thinking she's a game hen mix.

    That's interesting. I didn't think hatcheries would sell mixes but I'm new to all of this so maybe I assumed something I shouldn't. This is the one that is more brown. [​IMG]I just got a picture of her today. The other one I have had on my phone a while.

    How old are they? Top looks like possible silver leghorn and bottom either welsummer or brown leghorn. Can you make out earlobe color, op?

    They are 15 weeks old from McMurray hatchery. We are flying out for Thanksgiving so will have to check the earlobe color next week. They have just settled in for the night. Thanks for the input.

    I agree, the first is a silver Leghorn. I think I can see white earlobes on the second, so brown Leghorn.

    Probably a Silver Leghorn.

    Given the additional information regarding Murray McMurray and the second pic, I agree with the two above posts that they are hatchery quality Leghorns.
