    We think Molly is a Campine or a Hamburg her legs are a slatish-green. I'm not sure what Clarabelle is. Both are from a Rainbow Pullet pack that we got from MyPetChicken.

    [​IMG] I think you are right about Molly - she's a Golden Campine. Clarabell is a Silver Spangled Hamburg. Both of them will lay white eggs.

    I think this is a Leghorn:

    I think that this is not a Leghorn. Very round in the body:

    Various "Chipmunk" chicks. Possibly Welsummers?:

    Miss Molly is not a pure Campine. The leg color is wrong and no white ears. I am pretty sure Miss Molly is a Mr. Molly.

    Can anyone comment on the second set of pictures I posted?

    Julia is a barred rock
    As far as I can tell, the two white ones are not leghorns. I would say white rocks, but they're so big they could be cornish crosses. Look 'em up. BTW, I think the first one is a little cockerel from the size of that comb...
    And I think you're right about the welsummers. Though I've not had any before, the welsummer colors are beginning to show in the neck and breast.

    Quote:Molly has always had a very odd and upright stance. She got off to a rough start, so I'm being open minded while looking for an alternate name, should she be a Roo.

    And I started suspecting I had a clot of Welsummers. There's very little variation in the feathering across the group of them.

    Molly, at six weeks of age:

    The coloring on this bird is off somehow. Can someone comment on the variation?

    And yes, she is hatchery quality. I'm trying to understand what I am seeing about her that isn't squaring with what I see in show birds.
