    Can anyone help to determine what breeds these 2 chickens are? I think that the black chicken with white on it and the comb may be a silver leghorn rooster but I have no idea what the other one is. Please help. Thanks.[​IMG][​IMG]

    Are they mixes?

    The second one reminds me of an EE (Easter Egger) with it's coloring and legs.

    As far as I know, they are not mixes. I'll be honest, they came from McMurray Hatchery. We ordered Americaunna's and Buff Rocks. The one that I think is the Silver Leghorn Rooster looked like a chipmunk as a baby and we thought it was an Americaunna when we brought it home - obviously we were wrong. The Black one with the gold head didn't look anything like any Americaunna I've ever seen as a chick. That's why I'm clueless.[​IMG]

    From what I am learning, if you buy an ameracauna from a hatchery, it is an Easter Egger.
