    They are mixed. Do any of them have 5 toes? Do your friends know what breeds they have?
    The first one looks like a silkie mix, the one behind it looks like an EE. Both hens.
    Breed? Rooster
    Breed? Looks barred on the chest and tail? Rooster
    EE Rooster
    Breed? Hen.

    1st pic Pullet...looks like a mix of some sort...may have some EE in it? And the one behind it in that picture looks like it might be an EE.

    2nd pic looks like a Faverolles Roo...maybe mixed with something else? Or just hatchery quality?

    3rd pic Roo...I don't know the breed.

    4th pic is an EE roo.

    5th pic I can't tell what it is.

    They weren't sure about the breeds either; they got the eggs from another friend that has some rarer birds. They were guessing that the colorful rooster is a Faverolle. Not sure on the others. Many do have 5-6 toes on each foot - almost all have feathered feet. What is an "ee"? Sorry, these are my first chickens ever. I love them!!! But still new with the lingo.


    Our neighbors had some guesses - here's my guess/extra info:

    1) Silkie/Salmon mix of some kind - they have extra toes, feathered feet and blue ears...? Both hens
    2) Salmon Fav rooster - feathered feet, extra toes
    3) Rooster - no idea of breed - some feathers along sides of legs, no extra toes. Super aggressive bugger! Biggest bird we have right now.
    4) Rooster, feathered feet, extra toes. Ameraucana mix? (looks very much like a mix of this: http://www.ameraucana.org/scrapbook_files/lfbrownredm.jpg)
    5) Hen, non feathered feet, no extra toes. Very docile and friendly. I googled extensively and it sort of reminds me of a cornish mix of some kind?

    Anyhoo - not sure on any of these. We do have 6 confirmed breeds: 4 Black Cochins, 1 Buff Orphinton, 1 Black Ameraucana - all hens.

    Thanks all! Appreciate the input!

    1 - Silkie mix hen, behind her likely a EE
    2 - Salmon Faverolle cock
    3 - Mixed breed cock. NOT a silkie cross, it has no crest/muffs/beard/etc, and it's skin isn't dark at all. Perhaps a BR cross, would explain some of the aggressiveness.
    4 - Easter Egger cock.
    5 - Appears to be a BSL from the bad pic. Can't be real sure, I can't see her body.
