Inherited 4 chickens. Hens? breeds?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 

They are all supposed to be hens what do you all think? Some seem to have pretty large combs. I have only ever had silkies, so I know nothing about these. I think that the silver one is a maran and the black and white one might be a barred rock or Dominique. No clue about the other two. Any ideas?

They all look like hens to me.

All hens.

On the barred bird, are the legs yellow? If so barred rock

The tannish bird looks like a cream legbar.

Dark hen - partridge rock? Barnevelder? Can't see if it's single laced or double.

Light hen- blue splash maran? I see feathered legs. I'm thinking so.

Though, I would love to see closeups of all but the barred rock to be sure.

I really want aWhite  Sebastopol that is young and nearby! Our male died two days after we bought him. I would really want a female though because the Sebbie was to be a companion for my duck, and now we think it's a drake.

Thanks so much.

The barred bird has greyish legs.

The dark red bird is double laced.

The light gray bird has no splashes at all its just gray, and yes feathered feet.

I will try and get some closer photos this evening but the birds are pretty skittish so I might not have much luck.

I agree with these guesses (except the "dark hen" is a Barnevelder)

I set fire to the rain! Watch it pour as I, touched your face. Well it burn while I cried, because I heard it screaming out your name. And I threw us into flames. I knew that was the last time, the last time...I set fire to the rain! -Adele
