I have recently rehomed these 5 beautiful girls. I would love to know what breeds they are if anyone can shed any light

Thank you smile.png


My best guesses would be L to R

 

Black Austrolorp

Blue Austrolorp

Probably a red layer mix??

Deleware

Cuckoo Maran-- you'll know if she lays a dark egg

Matilda is the one I was quite certain I knew the breed of, light Sussex. I was originally looking to get 5 of these, but ended up rehoming a selection off one lady who was having to give up

Going off that photo!

Pearl looks identical to the australorp but she goes from black to the most beautiful grey/purple colour towards her back end.

I am glad the pictures helped!

Black australorps also have a beautiful green sheen to their feathers

Pearl is probably a mixed breed

I wonder if the smallest mainly black one is also an australorp. She had bottle green colouring through her feathers

yep the above pic is a Barred Rock female. The Barred Rock male will appear more grey and lighter than the female due to his genetics. I'm not positive about the others but look like you got good answers for them. they are all such beautiful girls!!♡♡♡ your very lucky!
