    I made a mistake and ordered the Ornamental Layer Collection from MM thiking they would include a packing list identifying the breeds included in my package. Wrong! [​IMG]
    They're about 6 weeks old now and I still have no idea what most of them are. Any help? Thanks in advance!

    Thanks for your reply. I was thinking Leghorn too but the chicks are from an Ornamental Layer Collection and the WL is not on the list of possibilities.

    I agree with the dark brahma. The one perching on the feeder in pic 3 with the tuft looks like a cream legbar.

    You're totally right Highlander. I have at least four Cream Legbars in that group that I ordered from Greenfire. I'm most interested in the one in the foreground that looks like a Barred Rock. I'm thinking either Dominique or Cuckoo Maran?

    And Little Creek Farm...may be Chantecler although that's not on the "list" either.

    Okay. I'm not sure what it would be then. Were they Straight run?

    He's neither Dom or Marans. Dominique have a rose comb and Marans have white legs. Does he have some colour coming through on his chest or is that just the pic?

    He has a little bit of cream color on his breast too...the pic is accurate.
