    Following are pics of chickens I purchased as day olds.
    They are now 20 weeks old.
    I do not know what breed/cross they are.
    Could you identify if possible.
    Thanks in advance

    2's no Welsummer; black sex link, I'd say, from all the pics I've seen, but take with a grain of salt as I don't have any BSL.

    I agree, #2 is NOT a welsummmer. I would also say Black sexlink. #4 does look like a Delaware, 1 and 3 I'd say are crosses. # 3 almost looks like she could be a working towards the Blue laced red color, and the roo with the Blue shoulder would have to be a cross as well I'd say.

    1. Uhh....Not sure. It kind of looks like Bec's Delaware Blue roo in her avatar, but not sure about that brown/red on the wing.
    2. Black Sex-Link (a cross parented by a Barred Plymouth Rock female and a Rhode Island Red or New Hampshire Red male) – very good brown egg layer! [​IMG]
    3. Delaware Blue? If its earlobes are white, then *possibly* a Blue Andalusian.
    4. Probably Delaware

    I'm not sure #1's earlobes are white, though, Maxx.
