    She's a hen that came in my "standard mix" day old pullets. No clue. The only one who has a comb...and she is REALLY irritated with me right now, because I keep going out to see if she's laid her egg yet, and she keeps jumping up and sqauwking at me. She's a white egg layer, by the way. I'm not going back to the nesting box till tonight...she's about to explode!


    While I'm at it...

    Mu guess is exchequer leghorn for the first one, but I could certainly be wrong. The second bird I would guess partridge rock, but again, I'm not sure. I don't have either of those breeds, so I am only guessing.

    Looking at the second bird again, it doesn't quite look like my rocks in body type, so maybe it's a dark cornish...?

    I'm thinking the first one is an Ancona. They are black with white spots, lay white eggs and have large, flopped over combs.
