    Hi everyone, I was hoping someone would be able to help me identify the breeds of these three chooks. They're currently 9 weeks of age. I had originally ordered eggs of light sussex, blue or black orpingtons, rhode island reds, and silver laced wyandottes to incubate. Unfortunately there was quite the stuff up of the order, so I didn't receive what I had paid for. Since these three don't look anything like their fellow hatchlings, it leaves me wondering what they actually are.

    Can't help you on the breed, but they are cuties! The last one is my favorite.

    they look like mixes. I can not think of any breeds that look like that.

    If you need help on the gender, then two top ones are pullets and bottom is cockerel. (I think[​IMG])

    They're mixed breeds and don't even look like the parent stock were any of the breeds you listed.

    That's exactly what I'm suspecting. Any ideas what breeds could have been crossed to result in any of those three?
