    Thought I'd help you with your photos. One's a Buff Orp, not sure about the other one:

    Buff orp and the other looks like it will be mottled, ancona perhaps?

    I think the black and white one is a leg horn, the variety starts with an E but it iludes me at the moment

    I think you mean exchequer leghorn? It's possible, but they're pretty rare.

    If they came from McMurray, buff orp and a mottled ancona. If they came from Ideal, there is a chance it could be an exchequer leghorn or a mottled ancona.

    thanks you all for the help. I'm not sure where they came from, they are 4-H chick chain chickens(say that 3times fast).[​IMG]
    thanks,
