    I had posted a while back about my 4 mystery chicks from our local feed store & they all looked like mutts back then. Which still probably the case, but I thought I would post some new pics of them to see if anyone had a change of insight on their breed or gender. Thanks in advance!!

    These 3 don't crow... so, pullets?!
    "Mrs Puff"
    "Thing 1" (She/he doesn't like having it's picture taken!)
    "Thing 2"
    (in the background, for a comb pic)

    Now here's "Foghorn Leghorn"- He crows & is now mounting our EE hens... So what breed could he be?

    1st one is a barred rock, last one looks like a white leghorn except for the comb, 2nd one I dont know.[​IMG]

    Quote:Not too sure but the first pic of your white roo looks like it may have a bit of a beard there. Could it be an EE? I'm just now getting where I can spot the occasional breed and none of these look like Orpingtons [​IMG]

    I don't think the first one is a barred rock. It doesn't have a single comb. As for what is it, I am not sure.

    All look like EE's. I am also in Okee and those bird are most likely from Ideal Hatchery. They famous for their EE's with yellow legs. Most, if not all of our feed stores get their chicks from there. Welcome to BYC from an Okee.

    Definitely not Barred Rock or Leghorn, as neither breeds are bearded. [​IMG]

    Looks to me like a bunch of EE mixes. All are boys but Thing 1 could be a girl.
