    On #6 I'm going with black copper Marans.

    On the rest...I don't know. I was leaning toward production Reds on the red ones, but it looks like one of them has feathered shanks. So....maybe crosses?

    Is it possible that these are crosses or are they from a hatchery?

    They could be mixed with anything, even more mixes. The colors you have are found in many, many breeds. Although you may get 100 different guesses they are all just about as likely to be correct. Many mixes may be impossible to determine what made them. It is just not always possible to tell what into a bird when they are mixed. #6 is not a Marans. It looks like a very poor quality partrige brahma. I suggest accepting them as healthy mixes and enjoy them for what they are.

    Where did you get them from. I don't think #4 is a RiR because she has this BEAUTIFUL lacing. RiRs are really just all brown with black on their tail feathers and neck. What do you think #6 is? I was told he was a Brahma, When he was a chick. I GET SO MAD A PEOPLE WHEN THEY SALE MIX BREED CHICKENS AND TRICK OTHER PEOPLE. I was going to use him for breeding, but I don't think he's a Brahma [​IMG]

    I see some Production Red crosses, a poor quality Cochin rooster, and a mutt pullet (the black one)
