    I don't really have a clue about breeds of chickens, so this is probably really easy for those of you who know chickens. However, I absolutely love the colors on this guy. He's got a bluish greenish ear lobe that really catches your eye. I've got some more I need help with identifying, but it took me 20 minutes to figure out how to upload this pic. More to come?

    He appears to be a silver spangled hamburg rooster! They're a very neat breed. [​IMG]

    I'd say a Silver Spangled Hamburg cockrel, not very old.

    And this one is...? Pretty sure she's a hen, other than that, I'm lost...

    Or this one? I have two of these. We call them Frick and Frack. They think they are as big (or bigger) than the regular size chickens.

    I appreciate your replies! I have NO clue about breeds. I got these chicks as babies from a friend who just grabbed me an assortment. They've all been raised together since hatching. They are about 12 weeks old and just tried free-ranging yesterday.

    Your hen looks like a speckled sussex. The roo I am not sure looks maybe like a red sex link roo, but can't say for sure.

    The first one there is a Speckled Sussex, the second small one looks like a Red Pyle Old English Game Bantam.

    Dang, you guys are fast! [​IMG] I spend more time trying to upload the stinkin' pictures than it takes you all to identify my birds. Thanks! I still have more (HA- I have around 50 chickens) that need Identified but for now, it's bedtime.[​IMG] Hope to hear from you all again tomorrow.
