    I could sure use some help in identifying breeds here! The bigger girls will be six weeks old tomorrow (Saturday), and the littler ones will be 5. They've all moved into their new coop, but haven't seen the outdoors yet, and I'm hoping to get a fence up real soon! We've got a lot of cats in the neighborhood - and a big owl, too... I'm a big chicken when it comes to letting them out near possible predators.

    First up is my golden polish... bald as she may be. We call her Lazy Sue since... she's a very lazy girl compared to the others. She's the only girl I'm 100% positive on regarding breed.


    Then there's Lily:


    Then there's Houdini:




    Suspected roo? This chick looked exactly like 2-3 of the other girls when just a baby, but (s)he's developed some white feathers when the others have not, and her? comb is much more pink.



    And some misc picks:





    So. What do you think I have? *lol* I couldn't get good pics of all of them - busy little creatures, they are!

    Houdini is a black astrolorp, the buff one in the far left in the final pic looks like a buff orpington. Could lilly be a delaware?

    Lilly looks like she could be a Delaware/EE cross, though after seeing Feather's legs, I'm thinking they could both possibly have some Light Brahma or other Columbian colored breed in them. I don't see the barring in the black that you'd get from a Delaware, at least not on Feather.

    I would say feather is a light brahma pullet, and not a cockeral. Looks like some E eggers in the mix also.
