    Bought these as Welsummer chicks, based on a guess. They came from the Meyer rare assortment and none were labeled.

    I was leaning towards Brown Leghorns. They seem to be getting white ear lobes.

    They looks so disgruntled because they hate me (teenage angst phase lol) and because the only time I can get within 400 feet of them is when they are roosting and half asleep.


    You can't see their legs, but they are bright yellow.

    Looks like they have red earlobes, if so, they're welsummers, if they're white, they're leghorns.
