    Hi,

    My son brought these chickens to me and I am not really sure what they are. What do you think they are. I looked online and in a catalog I have, but am still not sure what they could be.

    I am most curious about this bantam rooster:

    This one is black and white, but with feathered legs? A mix maybe? I think this ones a hen.

    This one is just plain white and a hen also, I think.

    What do you all think these are? Thank you if you can help me.

    Merry Christmas!!

    Quote:Hmmmm... No idea on the first, looks a bit like a Delaware but not the right body shape...
    The second looks like a Cuckoo Maran with feathered legs... Do they have feathered legs?
    The third looks like a leghorn, but she's too fat and her comb is small...
    Of course, they may all be mixes.
    Where'd he get them?

    Stuck! Someone help out!

    ETA: I realize I sound like a completely clueless dunce.

    Might not be the "right" body shape, but the first is a Delaware roo (maybe banty) I had one just like him only standard size.

    2nd one looks like a Barred Rock X Cochin (It's tall though so could be a Dark Brahma) hen

    3rd is a White Rock hen

    The first one I think for sure has to be some kind of bantam

    For the second one, I thought Cuckoo Maran also, but with feathering. I have 4 other maran hens, but they do not have the feathers on their legs.

    The third one, I am not sure at all. The were quite a few white breeds that I saw in the catalog, but couldn't decide on which she could be. She is a pretty big girl.

    I think someone may have given them to him, not quite sure.

    Thank you for you help.

    #3 is a white rock.

    How old is #2? It looks a lot like the barred rock x light brahma cross that I had, but the tail feathers look rooish to me.

    I'm going to have to pass on #1... I don't have any that look like that. [​IMG]

    I don't know how old #2 is, but I see what you mean about the feathers.

    #1 is definately a roo, he's got spurs.​
