    Okay. So in case this thread gets separated from the first. These two 9-10 week old chickens are now being added to my flock. The guy that I rescued them from found out that he is not legally allowed to have chickens. I already posted pics of the light colored ones. I am wondering about what bread they are. I am hoping they are both female. Any input would be helpful. Here are some pics.

    Now let's look at the darker one.[​IMG]

    Huh. Feathered legs and white skin usually means Marans, but her color is all wrong. Depending on where she came from, she may be a mixed breed.

    One is a Golden Cuckoo Marans and the other is a Salmon Faverolles. You are lucky to get some fairly unusual breeds!

    Feathering does look like a Welsummer but it should have clean yellow legs if it is.

    Rhodebar, wouldn't a golden cuckoo still look like a normal cuckoo at this point with very little gold coming in until later?

    It almost has to be a mixed breed then

    My cockerel had just about that amount of gold at this age. :)
