    I ordered Meyers "Rare Marans", Black Australorp, and Blue Andalusian (among others) and I can't tell which is which.


    Both of these chicks are feather legged. Blue Splash and White Marans?

    I have no idea...this is the only one with lighter coloring above the eyes. Clean legs.

    The one to the left is SLW, but the one in front?? Clean legs.

    Appreciate any help figuring it out!

    On the bottom pic of the 3 chicks I would say the one in question is a Black Australorp. I have one and that is how he looked as a chick. Can't help on the others

    Top one looks like a wheaten marans. The other maybe splash?

    Thanks guys!

    I'll have to check and see if Meyers offers Wheaten Marans. I don't recall that being in their offerings, but maybe it is. I'd like a Wheaten. [​IMG]
