    We ordered a meat and eggs combo from a hatchery and the layers finally have their big girl feathers. We are pretty sure about some of them, but we'd like some second opinions and some first opinions.

    So here's the first one, and we have NO IDEA what sort it is.

    Here is the second one- we have 5 or 6 like this. Some of them have more gold than others. Some are nearly entirely black. I thought they might be black stars... but the color looks wrong from the pictures I can find. She is GORGEOUS, very sleek and shiny. Green iridescence overlaid on the black and gold. I have a picture of her face if this pic isn't enough.

    And here's the last one that we're pretty sure is a white leghorn.

    Thanks for the help!

    Quote:Your wish is my command! Here is the only other pic I have, of her face. She and her friends are definitely pretty birds. They were not keen on being caught for pictures.
