A wile ago we got three speckled sussex, two blue laced red wyandottes, and four Easter eggers. As they started to get feathers I became suspicious that two actually were not SS! After a bit of research I started to suspect that they are welsummers! I orginally wanted welsummers but couldn't find them being sold anywhere, can someone confirm the breed of these two? They are around 8 weeks old now.

And the speckled sussex, CONFETTI:

(I hope the SS is not a roo!!! I want both breeds!)

Thank you for any help!

Most likely Welsummers. Could be Brown Leghorns but they look more shaped like Welsummers. If they develop white earlobes then you've got Leghorns.

Thank you!!! I will definitely be looking for the white earlobes, still hoping for welsummers :D! I'm glad they're all girls too! (The last pictures of Confetti were actually taken a wile ago though.) I'll post more sussex pics tomorrow though, if you would like to try sexing! The "Welsummers' photos were taken today though.
Thanks for the help!

I have a bonus question:), all of their combs (mostly EE) have been bright red! Is it from the heat?? It got up to around 100⁰ here today!!! (as you can see in one of Spark's photos, she was panting!)
Thanks:D
