    Pretty sure my silkie is going to be a hen but he/she acts like a rooster - chest bumping etc...

    And not sure about the breed of these two hens: The first one is med sized and black and white - acts like a road runner:

    And the next two photo's are of our teensy tiny bantam hen. One of these two is an egyptian something or other but we can't remember and it's hard to find a match on line... This one is smaller than a pigeon!!! All our chickens are 4 and a half months old....

    If the black and white one has 5 toes, I would guess a campine.

    3rd picture looks like a silver campine. No clue on the sex of the silkie, I don't do silkies.

    Your black and white "road runner" is an Egyptian Fayoumi. I always wanted one of those.

    Quote:Campines only have 4 toes. She looks like a Campine to me. The bantie I would guess is an Old English Game bantam maybe a silver duckwing (hard to tell from the pics). Can't tell the sex of the Silkie from the pics provided. Need better pics of the head and comb.

    Campines and Fayoumis look an awful lot alike, but this one has the body look of a Fayoumi.
