    I'm certain it's yet another roo, but can't figure out what breed. Yellow, clean feet so I've narrowed it down to brown leghorn or welsummer. What do you think?

    I hope so. I have three more similar that seem to be hens. I don't have a white egg layer any more so that would be cool.

    Solved the mystery of what breed they are now. They are silver duckwing old english game. They all have white heads now. Figured it out this morning. Still white egg layers, so all is good.

    Did it look similar to this? From your pictures it does. I am trying to figure out the breed of my 3 week old bantam

    No not really. They were chipmunk striped at hatching. Then they got a dull brown almost gray while their heads got lighter. They almost look like bald eagles right now at seven weeks.
