I have one Ancona hen and they do have the mottled pattern but the resemblence stops there.Ancona's lay white eggs and are much lighter in weight like a leghorn.

BTW I love my Ancona with her floppy comb.She lays a nice large white egg but she is just like a leghorn in that she is real flighty.

Quote:Lots of chicks look similar in the very beginning. I can assure you these orpingtons in this thread are so very rare I doubt anyone else has anything close to the eggs these came from.

If you were sold Anconas you can be fairly certain they are Anconas.
