Got a bunch of chicks from Rural king... 6 of them were supposed to all be Welsummers but to me 2 of them look like Easter eggers? The ones labeled prairie bluebell I do believe are prairie bluebells but the welsummers have me confused.... 2 look way different to me. The 2 that are labeled as Easter egger were sold to me as welsummers but if they are welsummers something isn't right. Either they are very low quality, they are a mix or they simply aren't welsummer. The 2 in question also have grayish/green legs like a Easter egger. There weren't even any Easter egger chicks at rural king when I got them though so I don't think they were mixed up in the store. Maybe mixed up at the hatchery? ๐Ÿค” I don't know.... Help please! I thought maybe they could be prairie bluebells that got mixed in the welsummer batch but the 2 prairie bluebells I do have don't look like these 2. The 2 prairie bluebells don't have the muffs and only one PB has greenish legs. The PB are also slightly darker in color compared to the chicks in question. Did I some how get 2 Easter eggers or are the welsummers maybe a mix of EE and welsummer? Then that would mean they are olive Eggers possibly right? I'm confused! ๐Ÿ˜‚I need to know the breeds I have and the welsummers genders if they are even welsummers. ๐Ÿคทโ€โ™€๏ธ๐Ÿคฆโ€โ™€๏ธ

I honestly don't really see any that look like Welsummers right now. A couple sort of do, but I can't see legs well enough to know.

Most look like Eggers. Post pics when they're completely feathered out. That will help with ID.

I thought they looked a bit off! It is confusing since they didn't have any Easter eggers at rural king. Must've been a hatchery mix up! We sha'll see! ๐Ÿคทโ€โ™€๏ธ I just hope they lay pretty eggs... ๐Ÿ˜‚

A little confusing, lol.

The first photo I'd say is an Easter Egger. (too early, but guessing female)
The 2nd, 3rd, 27th, and 28th photos ("Welsummer? Female? #3) look like an easter egger and obviously too young to sex, but I'm guessing female :)
The 4th and 5th photos look like an easter egger, guessing female.
The 6th and 8th photos look like a welsummer, very likely cockerel.
Photos 7, 9, and 11 look like a prarie bluebell, guessing female.
Photos 14 and 15 look like an easter egger female.
Photos 16 and 17 ("Welsummer? Female? #4")look like a welsummer pullet.
Photos 18 and 20 look like a welsummer, unsure on sex.
Photos 19, 21, and 23 look like a prairie bluebell, guessing female.
Photo 22 looks like a welsummer, guessing pullet.
Photo 24, welsummer, unsure on sex.
Photos 25, 26, and 29 ("Easter egger? #2") look like a welsummer, guessing pullet.

I am not an expert, these are just my guesses. I may be wrong.
I hope I didn't miss any :oops: I'm getting a little confused, lol ๐Ÿ˜…
I hope my post wasn't too confusing :oops: and I hope it helped :)

You've got some cute chicks! โค๏ธ

ETA: Make sure you update us when they're older! :pop

As long as they lay colored eggs I'll be happy! I will definitely keep y'all updated! I have a thread going where I post my hatch-a-longs and growth logs so I may just start posting weekly updates there so we can all watch them grow!
