The What Kind of Chicken Am I Game

So I have been playing this game since April and now I could use some help.  Most of the chickens I have figured out, but not these ones.  Here’s what I purchased:

Speckled Sussex,  Ameraucana, Black Australorp, Colored Dorking*, Dominique, Single Comb Light Brown Leghorn, Black Leghorn, Welsummer, Buff Orpington,  Black Jersey Giant, & Mottled Java*  (I put asterixes (asterii?) on the ones I have never had before.)

So all you chicken experts (and wannabe experts), please help me out.

    OK, this is fun! The first and last boys are Leghorns, also #3 looks like a Leghorn roo (white ear lobes, large single comb) although his color is off and his legs look dark? The girl in #4 is a Dorking (they have an extra toe). The girl in #2-I can’t see her face and comb to give me a clue..the closest breed that you ordered to what she looks like is a Welsummer, are her legs yellow? She looks really red though…..Did you order anything besides what you have listed?
    Nice batch of chickens!

    • Thanks Corinne. I am glad you enjoyed it; I have been. Thanks for the feedback. I have had leghorns before, but not roosters so they fooled me. And that’s good to know about the Dorking toes. On #2, we does not look anything like the other Welsummers I have. She could be a mutant or maybe something else snuck in the box. Those were all that I ordered though (plus the “free” unordered black leghorns).

    Well, the first and last roos appear to be leghorns. The 3rd pic is an Ameracauna roo. the 2nd and 4th don’t appear to be any of those listed, although I could be wrong.

    Ain’t it fun? I have several chicks right now that I look at and think “WHO are your parents??” because they DON’T match the pens where I gathered them……

    I agree with Katie that #3 looks like an Ameraucana in some respects (that would explain the dark legs) but he doesn’t have a pea comb, and he looks to have white ear lobes like a leghorn…weird little guy. I think the red girl must have been an extra…I love a mystery! have fun with them!
