    note: the pictures are kinda crappy because my digital is crappy.

    One of my older hens I have always considered a mutt. She has the same slate/green/grey legs as the chick:

    Thanks everyone. The 4 chicks I show here are the bulk of the 33 mixed "Pullet Surprize" I got from Ideal.

    In my opinion

    1 looks like a brown leghorn
    2 & 3 not sure, but maybe red or brown sexlinks
    4 & 5 are black australorps

    #1 is more than likely a welsummer
    #2 looks like a red or buff chantecler, it doesnt have a single comb, thats why I say chantecler
    #3 looks like a RIR
    #4 & #5 look like austrolorps

    Well, I'm hoping they're Welsummers, LOL.

    I'm glad to know my black hens aren't mutts!! Now I can say I have 2 Austrolorpes!

    Any further opinions would be appreciated. It seems there is no great consensus other than the Austrolorpes. [​IMG]

    Thanks-
