    I have two pullets that were labeled as heavies. They are barred with small single combs and yellow feet.I originally thought they were easter eggers but that doesn't seem to be the case. Any ideas?

    They look 'almost' but not quite like white laced red Cornish.

    Looks like some kind of cornish breed.

    I didn't think hatcheries/stores would sell mutt chickens, but could that be the case? I've looked up just about any breed that was remotely similar to my chickens but none match.

    Hatchery quality birds frequently do not 'match' the SOP for the breed. They may not be mutts but simply poor quality versions of the breed.

    hatchery birds usually fall far short of the SOP from what I've seen
