    I had thought all these little girls were the same breed, but now that I look at the pics, I noticed some have greyish/green legs and 2 have yellow. Could anyone tell me what they might be? I assumed they were all Phoenix. I ordered the Ornamental Layer Collection from MMH, still not sure what some are lol.

    I wish I could help you identify them; but I'm new to chickens. I do have to tell you, you have a very interesting bunch. I would love to see them when they fully feather out. I was going to order the Ornamental Layer Collection from MMH back in March..then I went to a poultry auction and it was instant gradification.....Good luck; I do hope someone can help you identify them.

    I have another post up with 4 pics that some think are EE's also. I dont know if my first 5 on here can be EE's as well. This is a tough job.

    The two with the yellow legs could be Partridge Welsummer pullets. Not sure if McMurray includes those in their Ornamental Layer special or not though...

    I don't even see any Welsummer chickens on MMHs site or in their catalog.

    Well I thought maybe I was onto something, thinking that the first 5 might be Silver Phoenix and the last 2 Golden Phoenix. But from all the pics I can find on Google, all Phoenix chickens have grayish legs.

    So just what could the little 2 oddballs at the end be?
