    Can anyone identify the black and white chics in the center of this photo? They came in a batch of cornish cross.

    What hatchery?

    My guess is either a Colombian Rock (straight comb) or a Colombian Wyandotte (rose comb).

    I can't see any feathers on the legs, but if it does have them and a pea comb it's a Light Brahma.

    They came from rural king, so I have no idea what hatchery. They have no leg feathers and a single comb. They didn't having any chics that should look like these guys. I can't wait to see what they look like as the mature!

    Sounds like Colombian Rocks. The other possibility is a Delaware, if the black has barring in it. I can't see well enough in the picture to tell.
