    I posted about this chicken a while back but it's bigger now so maybe someone can identify it better. This is Crow, nice chicken, not terribly flighty, low on the pecking order, I'm thinking pullet but not sure on breed if any specific, could be anything:

    Here's Dotty, Cuckoo Marans maybe? Higher than Crow in the pecking order, does Dotty look pullet-y to you?:

    I think the first one might be a mix

    I'm not certain.

    Is there such a thing as a Black Wyandotte?

    Both look like pullets.

    The eggs came from http://www.chickenhousesplus.com/ So it is most likely a barnyard mix. Just wondering if anyone thought it could be something. The black comb is interesting.

    Mostly hoping for all pullets with this group from the 4H hatching project! So good news if we all think they look like ladies!
