My husband and I have been trying to match the 2 and 1/2 month old chickies against pictures of breeds on the internet. We think we've been somewhat successful.

We know we have 2 buff orpington hens because they told us they were when we bought them.Boss is looking at the camera. Her name is Boss because she is the boss. Gabby is eating from what is supposed to be the hanging food dish. Gabby was named for her extremely vocal personality. She is a mommy's girl.


Our four others are feather legged bantams. Owl is our Rooster. He loves to crow and watch his girls. We think he is a bearded Belgian d'Uccle in the Mille Fleur coloring. He is a mommy's boy!




Next is my husband's pride and joy, what we think is a white sultan hen he named Princess. We think she is a she because our roo has a huge crush on her. She is his favorite, and daddy's favorite too. She does have 5 toes. And, if I understand correctly, vulture hocks.



Next is JoJo. We think she might be a black cochin bantam hen? These are the best ones I could get of her. She's camera shy.



Finally, we have Robin. We think she's a hen. She's really sweet. We don't have any guesses on her breed though.

Princess looks just like the Sultan hen I used to have.

JoJo looks like a dark Blue Cochin. I say Blue because I can see lacing on her breast, which Blacks don't have. Blues can come in various shades.

Robin also appears to be a Bantam Cochin - you should just sent her on to me!

She is Barred (not Partridge), but most Barred Cochins are white with black barring. She may be on her way to being a Crele - lucky you!

I would repost the pics of JoJo and Robin over on the Cochin thread - lots more Cochin experts there:

There is also a Crele Cochin thread - I would also repost pics of Robin over there and see what they have to say:

Looks like you got them all. Robin is indeed a Cochin, and she is indeed Partridge. Barred are not brown, they are black and grey/white. She will not get her adult Partridge coloring until she gets a little older.

I was not aware that all Partridge (Pencilled) start out as Barred. At what age do they change?
