    We got 5 pullets from a farm this past August, but still aren't entirely sure as to what they are. One is a BR, for sure, and Sarah, the orange one, is supposedly a BO (even though she displays NONE of the traits BO's are famous for, which is why we call her "Herky-Jerky" most of the time...). The black-and-white one, Lucy, is supposedly a Wyandotte, but we're not sure, either. The other 2, we have no clue, and any help will be greatly appreciated.

    Do you have it on the web? Just copy/paste the address and stick it between tags.

    To post a pic, upload the photo to photobucket or Flickr, then copy the image code and paste it in your post.

    Whew, that took long enough, thanks for your help, guys (sorry, I'm such a computer spaz - as you can see, the date on my camera is wrong, too, because I don't know how to change it...). Here's another pic of "Zena", our warrior princess, who we also have no idea what she is...[​IMG]

    Far left.. Barred rock hen
    Back left... can't tell she looks like a mix... there are many possibilities Wellsummer, OEG, Brown leghorn cross, or EE cross...
    Front left... Looks like a cross between a Barred Rock and a Silver Laced Wyandotte.

    Back middle... (Orange hen) Buff Orpinton.

    Back right... Silver laced Wyandotte.

    Zena appears to be an Easter Egger.
