    Have to pullets that I am unsure of.

    The first is about 7 weeks old (i got here a 5 weeks). She is black with silver mixed in. She has black feet with feathers on the outer toes. She also has a black tipped nose. She is very calm and relaxed. She also hasn't chirped since Ive owned here but sounds more like an adult hen with her faint clucking. If i had to guess i would say she might be some type of Maran.

    The second pullet I got when it was 4 weeks and is now 7 or 8 weeks old. I got her from a local guy who said she was a buff oprhington. When she was a chick she did look like the other buff's but now she doesn't. She is a light tan starting in her mid section to her tail and from the head to mid section she is a darker brown. She has no feathers on her feet and yellow legs.

    I sure would like to know what these chicks are so any help will be greatly appreciated and I'm glad to join you all here at BYC.

  2. The first one looks kind of like a blue-black Andulusion. The second one is a Red Star/Red Sex Link

    Quote:Thank you for your help. I think your right on the nose about the Red star but upon reading another post in the forums about Andulusions, I think that the black pullet is a Blue Cochin. (because of the feathered legs) But that just my rookie educated guess.

    The second one is a sex-link, should be a terrific layer. The first one, I would have guessed andalusian also, except for the feathered legs. The body and feathers look all wrong for a cochin, though. Cochins are little puffballs, this bird looks more streamlined.

    From the newest picture, I see you dark girl is not black but Blue. However, I don't think she is a pure breed. Maybe a cross with a Cochin? Maybe a Blue Marans, but I wouldn't think so because you don't just happen upon Marans. It could be though. Definitely 2 pullets though from what I see.
