    EVERYTIME I try to post this, it disappears, so I might have a thousand threads :rolleyes:
    Anyway the two grayish ones, one is a Roo and the other a pullet. Their legs are black with orange outlining. They were to be Australorps, same as the jet black one. For the life of me, I know her legs are dark, but I can't remember now if there is some orange to them.:/
    This is the gray/blue Roo-

    And a side by side of the difference in the color. Even their combs are different.

    With their combs being different, I know they aren't all Australorps..what do I have :jumpy

    Thanks for any help!!/D

    The black one looks like an Australorp, the blue one has a rose comb right? Maybe a Wyandotte? But it's legs aren't the right color [​IMG].

    That's what I am thinking- rose. Then sometimes I look at it and think pea comb. Darn things! lol I will find out in a month or so for sure, I guess lol Thanks for your reply! :D

    It's definitely a rose comb rather than a pea comb. No particular breed stands out to me. Could they be a mix?

    They're from tractor supply..so who knows [​IMG] My tractor supply this year was very disappointing with their chicks. NOTHING was labeled. It either said "Pullet" or "Straight Mix". I googled and I *think* this is what they could be-

    I don't think so, because it has a rosecomb. I'm thinking some sort of mix.

    You are so right about the
    Comb! I totally missed that! [​IMG] Thank you! Can't wait to see them all grown up. Looks like they will be beauties! :)

    They might be blue wyandottes. There are a couple hatcheries that have them. Do they have yellow skin? It's hard to tell in the photos. The best way to check is to see what color the bottom of their feet are.
