    These girls were hatched in February 2016. I am having a hard time identifying them. We just got them yesterday from a friend who also doesn't know what breed they are. Many thanks![​IMG]

    Did they come from a hatchery? I ask because they don't appear to be purebreds to me.

    Thanks for the reply! Yes they came from a hatchery where you didn't really know what you were getting. I wonder if there is a way to tell what crossbreeds they are?

    Two Black Sexlinks, one with a lot more gold than usual, and a New Hampshire.

    I"m thinking black sex link for the first two. The second is atypical with that amount of color, but it's very pretty. The last one looks like a hatchery New Hampshire.
