    #2 - blue andalusian, mine laid smallish white eggs and was the only one of my chickens that could fly 7 feet into a tree
    #3 - agree its a boy! dunno breed
    #4 - production red (also iffy in the gender category)

    Thanks for taking a look & for the answers!!! I am so excited to finally know what I have. I think I have gone chicken crazy [​IMG] I spend most of my time outside watching them. When I come inside I'm on BYC [​IMG] Thanks again.
