We bought 10 chickens from a man that raises chickens of all kinds and I have several I'm unsure as to what breed they are. They should all be pullets any ideas
This has feathered feet

Yes they are all hens, and I am not sure what color eggs they will lay since they are crosses, but the general rule is:

White earlobes= white eggs
Red earlobes= brown eggs

This method will not work on all breeds or crosses though. :)

Thanks for your help I thought they were hens but some have larger combs and small waddles and since I'm not sure of the breed I wasn't sure if that meant Roo... I'm glad you clarified

Thank you I'm just curious what breeds they are not that it really matters as long as they lay lol
