    Got my layers about the middle of May this year. The supplier didn't send what I ordered and just substituted whatever he had.
    I have identified all of them except for two. Can you help?

    The first picture is of the mystery hen. Could she be a Barnevelder?

    The second picture is of the rooster which I think is an Americana.

    No- not a barnvelder. She almost looks like a welsummer, but I'm going to say she's a cross of some sort. The rooster looks like an Easter Egger.

    Welsummers should not be barred like that. Sorry I don't have any alternate suggestions.

    Thanks for your help, I really appreciate it. I will try to Google the Welsummer chicken and see if that's what I have.

    #1 is not a barnevelder or welsummer, but could well be a cross of the two.
    #2 I'm sorry I have no idea! [​IMG]

    #1 looks like a Partridge Rock.
    #2 is an Easter Egger (which hatcheries mislabel as Ameraucanas).

    Thanks again for your help. I finally heard back from the supplier and he tells me it is a Partridge Chantecler.

    What do you think?
