Reasonably certain of the gender, but what do I call them? :)

    These are 15 weeks old. I believe them to be girls, but I may be rehoming a few and want to make sure I get the names right. They were from 'mystery' eggs. [​IMG]

    This one looks like a wyandotte, but does not look like my GLW or BLRW. Gold laced blue or? It's a very pretty color, whatever it is. [​IMG]

    Second one is just a random orange chicken - but she is much darker and less stocky than my BO's.

    This one is definitely a langshan, correct? Hatchery quality, I assume.

    The first one looks maybe blue laced red, but it has a single comb so I don't think it's a wyandotte. [​IMG]

    I guess 'pretty mutts' it is. hee hee. I don't think the orange one is a RIR - I have those as well (production reds, if you want to be picky) - this one is definitely orange and not red. And I *think* wyandottes can throw straight combs now and then. Not planning on ever showing chickens, so it doesn't matter to me. [​IMG]

    The first one is a BLRW. They can have single or rose combs. Maybe a new hampshire for the red one.

    Quote:Ah, so she's just a more goldy version of a blrw? My others are definitely red and are much darker. Nifty. [​IMG]

    Red does sorta look like my New Hampshire, except without the black on the end of the tail and black flecks on the neck. That's still my guess though.
