    I am just got 6 new girls and I'm wondering if you can help me out! A mean raccoon killed my ENTIRE flock (turkens, blue cochins, aracaunas, bramas and wyandottes...... I'm still in shock and mourning and have yet to catch the critter [​IMG] But I will [​IMG]

    I think this is a.....?[​IMG] Wellsummer?

    Rhode Island Red? [​IMG]

    I have no idea! [​IMG]

    i'm not sure about the first one being a welsummer, her legs should be yellow and her coloring is a little off. does she have a single comb or not?
    the second is a red sexlink, or golden comet.
    the third is a partridge rock.

    First one I'm not sure on.. Welsummer is possible though.
    Second is a Red Sexlink (Red Star, Golden Comet, Cinnamom Queen, ISA Brown, all the same thing).
    Third I'm thinking more Barnevelder than Partridge Rock ...

    The pictures aren't that great, but I pulled up partrage rock and it looks just like the top chicken which I thought may be a wellsummer. That last chicken's picture doesn't do her justice. Her head and feathers are shiny black with tinges of green and her mottling is a spectacular bright copper, she is stunning compared to the more bland first picture! The picture of a barnevelder looks just like her....

    1 looks pretty spot on for a hatchery quality Welsummer
    2 Im not sure of but most likely Red Sexlink
    3 Looks to be some sort of Barnevelder

    Murphismo:

    I'm so sorry for the loss of your flock and aren't sure about the breeds--first one guess easter egger, but has yellow legs, one a red sexlink, the other one. . .beautiful feathers. . .no clue. I hope that you have a secure coop to lock your new girls up at night until you can get rid of the raccoon. Please remember that chicken wire is only to keep chicks in. . .chicken wire is not strong enough to keep varmits out. Good luck with your new girls!

    Pretty sure #3 is NOT a partridge rock. I'm raising two right now and from both my experience and what I've seen in other people's pictures, their heads are lighter than the body, not darker.
