    I'm not sure exactly even what breeds these mixes are...
    I'm pretty sure the barred ones have cuckoo marans in them.
    not sure on the buffish one.
    If you have any idea on what kinda mix they are please let me know. I'm more interested in genders though.
    First up:I think this one is a pullet

    Jen,

    The first one looks like my red sex link, and the rest look like my cuckoo marans.

    I only have the one red hen, so we will have to wait for the next set of feathers to make an attempt at an ID, lol.

    The marans may be maran/maran, because of the strong indication of the cuckoo barring.

    One more molt might tell. The ones with the stronger combs match mine that are roosters at that age.

    Glad to see them, I wish I had a camera to show the mutt eggs that I kept for myself and hatched.

    The only possible fathers are Cuckoo Maran, Welsummer, and Polish. Polish are out, and except for the sex link, Welsummer is out. So Maran has to be the dad for the barred ones.

    I looked at the red one again, and if the neck seems longer than the others, it could have come from my salmon faverolle hen and welsummer roo. Just another possibility.
