Could anyone help me identify what breeds my hens are?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

I first got these hens as two day old chicks on craigslist and at the time all I was concerned about was getting laying hens, so I didn't bother to ask about the breed, just if they were good layers. If anyone could help me figure out what breeds they are, I would be very appreciative.

 

Hen #1

 

Hen #2

 

Hen #3

 

Hen #4 (Nicknamed Thing #1 because she likes to run from me and get into things with the next one)

 

Hen #5 (Nicknamed Thing #2 because she likes to run from me and get into things with the last one; and I included 2 pictures of her because I didn't think either was good enough by itself)

 Buff Orpington
