    Hi everyone! These are my newest group of birds ( I've previously owned buff orpingtons and while I was obsessed with them, they ALL turned out to be roosters and were given to a nice man with much more land than I have). Can anyone tell me what breed of chicken I have here? Her name is Dolly :) [​IMG][/IMG]

    She looks like a lighter colored Red Sex Link or maybe a Buff Chantecler. I'm not positive though, so anyone else got any thoughts? Love the name and :welcome too!

    Can you put up a better photo, she looks asleep on her feet. Would like to see a natural stance with her head up and eyes open. Also a shot of her comb

    Any guesses on the breed of these two? I think I've got my other 7 pegged but these two are still a mystery

    she looks like a mixed breed bird to me. Could be a mix of mixed, no specific breed jumps out.



    Where did these chicks come from?

    They came from Ideal hatchery. I ordered their standard egg layer assortment so I got a random mix of chicks. The first chick someone said maybe a barnevelder or a kind of Wyandotte but I have no clue what these two lil cuties are @drumstick diva

    [​IMG] thanks everyone! I gladly accept her as a mixed breed, as she is just the sweetest thing ever. Someone else asked for a better picture though so here it is.

    That's the difference a good pic can make. I agree she looks like a sex link hen.
