    Hello! I have 3 chickens that are an unknown breed. I used to think they were all spangled hamburgs, but one of them looks really different from the other two. I have no idea if I'm correct, I'm just going off the internet. I'd love your input! Also, in the first picture, the brown and black chickens are the ones in question :)

    Do you know where you got them? They sure could be Hamburgs.

    All three are from Tractor Supply. From personal experience, I know they get their breeds mixed up all the time. Once, I was supposed to get a leghorn but I got a faverolle (a nice surprise :) )

    The leg color is right, as well as the combs that I can see for Hamburg, so that's what I would think too.

    Ok, good to know :) Do you think they're all spangled, based on their coloration?

    I think so, the gold should spangle out more as they mature.
