    the one that i have had most problems with finding out what breed is, Spot. I'd like to know what you all think. I'm going to have to get rid of him, and since he's so pretty i don't want to eat him. but, it'll be easier to sell him if i knew what he is. here's two pictures of him:

    Is the rooster in the first pic a full-sized bird or a banty? It looks like and Easter Egger, as bad as I hate that term. Bearded, comb and greenish legs are the indicators. The hen you call blackly looks like a black sex link. The last bird you have has a white ear lobe and my guess would be a brown leghorn hen.

    okay, Spot (the rooster) is a full size, i am guessing cause he's just as big or bigger then the others. Him being an EE're explains the babies with poofy checks... Bossy being a light brown leghorn explains the one white egg a day, and the fact she's a bit bigger then the bantams i had as a kid... Blacky 2 I had NO idea lol

    Quote:the reason i was so confused on her is because she was suppose to be a bantam, but no smaller brownish eggs and always had one white egg.
