Anyone want to take a guess at what breed these 3 chickens are?

    I'm sorry that some of this pictures loaded upside down. I tried everything to correct it but to no avail. Any help will be appreciated. They are 4 months old now and came from a Bantam Poultry show as eggs left in cages after the show was over and owners gone.

    The black 1 resembles a game/EE. The buff 1 an EE/Favoroles and the last a white rock.

    the black is an oegb pullet
    the buff is a mille fleur d'uccle pullet
    the white might be a white cornish or white rock but im not to sure on it and is a cockerel

    none of them are mixes though...if they came from a show i would be jumping up and down with joy as they should turn out very very nice

    I agree that #3 is a Roo, but the comb looks straight which would eliminate him from pure Cornish, right? For the black hen, I forgot that black oeg have slate or black legs.

    I agree with everything here. I can't believe I'm saying this, but I think the white is a bantam white rock. Weird, you almost never see that.

    yea it would but the face just reminds me of a Cornishes it is possible but unlikely to be a Cornish mix more likely is a bantam white rock but i am not throwing out the mixed idea altogether. please do repost in about 2-4 months as i want to see how the white one has filled out as that will tell a lot about the bird and i really want to see the d'uccle in a few months as well by then she should have some of her spangles that create the milli fluer pattern.

    I thought the buff was maybe a bearded d'Anvers based on pictures. Thank you!!!
    I don't even know what a oegb is can you spell that out for me...sorry : / I have a mille fluer d'uccle and this one looks so different maybe a d'Anver? The white is a cockerel as it crowed yesterday for the first time! Thank you!!!
    Okay to ease your mind on that...the show I got these eggs from was a Bantam only show :) So are Bantam White Rocks rare? Thank you!!!
    The white, "Rocky", is on the smaller side so the bantam thing plus it coming from a bantam show would probably settle that. I will repost later although since "Rocky" is a cockerel I will probably not keep him. I have silkies and I have one Roo and two cockerels already and I don't have any pullets for "Rocky". The pullets I'm not worried about I'll keep them.

    THANK YOU ALL FOR YOUR HELP!!!

    The buffs do look like mille fleur bearded D'uccles. Can you get a full height shot of them? Do they have "vulture" hocks? What do the feathers on their feet look like? Is the one you have a roo or hen? Sometimes it takes a while for the white spots to come in. BTW what are the spots called?

    The roos are darker.

    Haha, rare enough that I've been on this site for a couple of years now, and that's the first time I've seen someone who has one. People usually have Rocks for nice bigg eggs and for meat. Making the breed a bantam kind of erases the most common uses of a Rock. But then again, cuteness often trumps function.
