    Following this thread:
    https://www.backyardchickens.com/threads/any-help-guessing-breed-and-sex-part-1.1328424/
    do you have any more suggestions and obseervations about breed and gender of my chickens? Thanks in advance!

    1. My bantam cockerel! A lovely bird..started crowing about 2 weeks ago..He's very protective. A BYC member suggested he might be a splash OEG bantam..I'm leaning towards this but there is hen feathering as I can see...Maybe some Sebright genes thrown in?

    (Here he is at around 5 and 6 months old, respectively)

    2. She's a pullet as far as I can tell. As a member here suggested a Barred Plymouth Rock? But is it common the coloration on her neck for Barred Rock chickens?

    (Here at 3 and 4 months old, respectively)

    3.A pullet. Could she be a Red Ranger? NHR? EIR?. Like the rest of the red/buff chickens I have most of them have a quick growth rate. Is it a common fact for Red Rangers?

    (At 3 and 4 months old, respectively)

    4.A pullet. A very friendly and docile bird. Her breed? Could she be Red Ranger?

    (At 3 and 4 months old, respectively)

    5. A bantam cockerel, with 5 toes and feathered legs. Quite friendly and docile. What breed could he be?

    (At 2,5 and 3,5 months old, respectively)

    7. Pullet. A member here suggested that she may be Welsummer. What do you think?

    (At 3 and 4 months old, respectively)

    Not sure about #1
    #2 could be a campine.. def not a barred rock. The coloring and the body shape are all wrong. Could be a campine mix.

    I honestly think they're all mixes. Then again, if they're game anything I'm lost. LOL.

    Thank you! Thats what I'd like to know...for the particular chickens that look like mixes which crossbreeds could usually give these color patterns.

    Wrong leg color for campine or campine mix.
    Only 6 looks correct.

    Everyone else is a mutt.

    Thanks for the reply. So you mean that if a Campine crossbreeds with a breed with no slate colored legs, the offsping always has slate colored legs?

    If you notice closer, he has gold feathering on neck and saddle feathers, etc. Another member suggested OEG..only thing I'm not sure it's his feathering..quite like hen feathering..Shouldnt the tail be longer at 6 months old. I think OEG have longer tails.

    Yeah, I see that.
    So he is probably a mix

    Campines should have slate legs. Crosses should have slate or green. They could have white legs, but not yellow. I think so, anyway. I'm not always right.

    #2 looks to be golden cuckoo
    And #1 is not hen-feathered. You can see his saddle feathers clearly in the second pic
