    these
    are my first chickens...i bought them 3 months ago. the one on the right lays blue/green eggs, so i know she's part arecauna...my guess is she is mixed with sussex...dont know. the one in the middle has a weird 5th toe:/, feather footed, lays more pinkish than brownish eggs, and is probably 8 or so lbs. the bantam rooster has a tag around his foot. i was told he was a show rooster. as i said, this is the first time in my life i have had chickens, and i must say its a lot cooler and more fun than i thought it would be![​IMG]
    thanks in advance!

    Your rooster is a black tailed white Japanese bantam. I can't see his tail very well, but he appears to be young. Older roosters will have a much fuller tail.

    The girl in the middle looks like a brahma mix to me.

    For your other girl, if she lays blue/green eggs and doesn't fit in the auracana or ameracauna standard then she's an Easter Egger. She's got white ear lobes, and I'm not familiar enough with those breeds to make a guess.

    1. Black tailed white japanese
    2. dark brahma-if 5 toes, it's a mix
    3. Easter Egger, they do sometimes have white lobes, and from certain places, no muffs
