    I have four pullets and one too they are almost 8 months old, ordered a hen assortment and these five where among them. Have been told they are Silver leghorns and yes they do look like them from the pics I have seen but they are bantam size, hens lay daily small eggs, but I was told leghorn (silver) grow slower anyone know anything about this or maybe what kind of chicks I have here? Thanks

    I don't think it's a Welsummer just because I have some the exact same age right now and they look nothing like that. Maybe you could contact the people who sent them to you or just simply look up key words on google.(striped brown chick, brown black bantam, etc.) Google answers a lot of my chicken questions :)
