    Hi guys, I recently bought 4 beautiful young chickens from a breeder and was wondering if any of them were full breeds. The seller didn't really mention any breeds so I thought maybe one of you could help. If you need better pictures just let me know, this was the best I could do for tonight. I have my own guesses but :confused:. Thanks for the help!

    Hen 1: Possible BO? (Excuse the muddy feet it was rainy today)

    Hen 2: Black hen with crest, possible Silkie mix?

    Hen 3: My only guess was maybe Blue Andalusian or Leghorn mix, but I really don't know?

    Hen 4: Sorry for the bad pic, but she has a dark brown head and lighter brown colored body. She's also in the background of the first pic. My guess is some sort of hybrid.

    #1 could be Buff Orpington, but it looks like she's getting bullied.

    #2 is a Crevecour, I think. (not sure I spelled it right)

    Not sure about the other 2.

    Thanks dunnmom, and I did notice that she was missing some feathers in the back. I looked up possible causes and I just thought it was moulting. Definitely not mites. I'll try to figure out what's going on. Could a rooster cause that?

    1 Buff Orpington, 2 Silkie or Polish mix, 3 is not a Leghorns or Andalusian as she has red earlobes, & unsure of 4.

    I'm not too sure about roosters. I don't have one myself, although I know they can cause damage to a hen's back. You can try and make her a hen saddle. I made two out of the legs of jeans that I'd blown out the knees, a little elastic to go around the wings and a few safety pins. Or you could try Blu Kote if there are no open wounds.
