    7 week old Princess Snuffy. There is no comb

    I agree. The top is a Wyandotte and the bottom one almost looks like a Welsummer but i'm not certain.

    I think the top one could be a Dark Cornish.

    The top one is absolutely a dark cornish we have 28 of them right now.... spot on in comparison! We also have partridge rock and I'm willing to bet that's what your second one is. Pullets.

    Quote:Dark Cornish are not bred just for meat like White Cornish. I can't say about how well they lay, but they are a dual purpose breed. The Partridge Rock should be a good layer.
