    Hi Folks,

    I have four pullets and hoping for an idea on what breed you think they are.

    First is Pat who I think may be a brown leghorn...

    And then Chickette...



    Help or input would be appreciated please. These were part of a rainbow layers pack and would love to know what they are breed wise. If other or more pictures would help please let me know these girls are quick but I sometimes can get pictures.

    First picture looks like a Brown Leghorn. Is her earlobe red or white? Because Leghorns have white earlobes.
    Second picture is a Dark Cornish.
    Third picture is a Partridge Rock.
    The white hen is a White Rock. But just to be sure what color are her earlobes?

    x2 but is the breast of the top one sort of a salmon color? if so it's definitely a welsummer.

    #2 is not a golden laced wyandotte, GLWs don't have double lacings. Welsummers and Brown Leghorns all have brownish colored breast, what would really tell them apart is their earlobe color. :)

    The earlobe on Pat the first one is white.

    And I apologize but me being a newbie is guessing that Lucky has red earlobes. Or am I looking at the wrong part.

    My first year of chickens is a fun adventure which I am loving.

    I though barnvelder for the second bird, but I'm not really experienced enough with them or dark cornish to tell them apart. Must be this afternoon's research project!
    Partridge rock--those are such beautiful hens!
    White rock. Way too thick to be a leghorn.

    Your first one is a Light-Brown Leghorn, the second I'd say is a Dark Cornish (they are more common than Barnavelders, which look similar), the third is a Partridge Rock, and the last one is a White Plymouth Rock. Nice flock!
