    a while back some friends gave us some chicken and we got these 2 chickens, we have no idea what the heck they are. we know they are both pullets and supposedly lay brown eggs. are they mutts maybe? the closest i can come to identifying one is possibly a new hampshire red, the other is completely lost on me. here are some pics of each chick, any ideas would be great!

    NH?

    the pics aren't the greatest, they are still pretty timid. the second one is definitely a greyish (silver or lavender maybe) although the pic looks more white. ideas? thoughts? thanks!

    No such thing is "blue splash"


    But yes, the top one is likely a New Hampshire (no red on the name) and the other is a Splash Andalusian. [​IMG]

    thank you so much! we've chicken-sat an andalusian before and loved her, very excited to see we have one for keeps!
     
  5. Excuse me for wording it wrong. It looks like a splash out of blue andalusian to blue andalusian mating. Some call them splash and some call them blue splash.
