    I ordered the assorted rare breeds (pullets) from mypetchicken.com. i figured out some of them but here are the ones that ive had no luck with.



    i was thinking that these may be Anconas but I'm not sure.




    one of the black ones has a little white in it's face but the rest are all black.


    this one i was thinking may be a golden lakenvelder but it has a lot of black on its back/ middle section

    thanks for any help

    1. Either anacona or exchequer leghorn
    2. sumatra with dark skin, and others might be just poor quality...
    3. golden lakenvelder

    i keep seeing all sorts of chicks that don't look like the breeds they are supposed :/ i know where to not order from :(

    my guesses:
    anacona or exchequer leghorn
    what type of combs? if they are cushion combed then they maybe sumatra's
    possable golden lakenvelder
