    Please see the original thread for baby pics and 1 week old pictures. I believe I have most of the breed figured out and I know I have one roo (which I think is a Welsummer). So what do ya'll think?

    Brown Leghorn or Welsummer? (legs are yellow/flesh colored but not screaming yellow like my Barred Rock Roos

    Look at the Black and White which I thought was a BR pullet, but now I'm leaning to Cuckoo Marans? Welsummer Roo can be barely seen in this pic, but look at that red comb!!!! Of course you see my Polish and White Leghorns and Appenzeller Spitzhaubens. There is a buff and a columbian colored ones I'm still up in the air with.

    The brown one looks like a Wellsummer. The white one a Leghorn x Rock?

    That's a welsummer hen [​IMG] A roo would have black in the chest.
    As for the barred one- what kind of comb? Do you have a close-up?

    Here is a close up of the barred chicken. Looks like a single comb with black/white legs.

    I know the picture is blurry but there is a roo in the bunch. I have 11 of the Welsummer looking ones. He has black breast feathers and is kind of a burgundy color.

    Wow- what the heck is that barred one? It's probably so obvious- but I can't think of any that would have black legs [​IMG]

    Yes- I do see some wellie roos. I've got tons of them myself!

    Could she be a Cuckoo Marans?

    Quote:I agree. Hen's chests are brown. Roo's have black mixed in with the brown.

    I think Cuckoo Marans should have white legs.

    In your second post, botton pic, the red combed bird is a welsumer rooster. The others are hens. Can you see the difference in the color of their breast feathers?

    The barred bird looks like a cuckoo marans hen to me. Their legs are varying shades of light to dark, but hers show no yellow, like a BR would.
