What breeds are these girls? Please & thank you.


Sally:




Harriet:


Big Bertha - is she a RIR?


Whisper:
- too small for a Jersey Giant & the wrong color legs


Flopsy:





RIR Roos?? I have a hunch...




Chester, my OEGB roo. What kind of OEGB would he be considered?
(sorry for the poor quality photos - he's impossible! *haha*)

i would say the 2 white ones are leghorn crosses . They look to have some othe colors on some of thier feathers .

The black one maybe an austrolorp

the red one is a Rhode island red

the brown with is a brown leghorn

i think the oegb is a wheaton roo but not sure

I agree. White ones look like white leghorns, brown one is brown leghorn. The black one I don't know, but not an Australorp, no black legs. The others look like RIR, but I can't tell if roo or not. How old are they? There isn't any saddle feathers apparent in the picture, and they look a lot like my RIR pullet a few weeks ago.

Your OEGB is a Black Breasted Red. I had one, and it looked just like yours.

I have two California Whites that are a White Leghorn/California Grey(?) cross. They are white with black flecks. In the pics it looked like yours had some flecking.

Hmm - thanks, Hoosier. They do have some black flecks - I'll run with that.



Any other ideas on the Australorp-looking hen, guyz??
