    I know that 2 are cochins (a Blue Cochin and a Partridge although the Blue Cochin doesn't look dark enough I guess time will tell?) Someone suggested that the yellow and white one might be a leghorn (splet right?) That one is also a bit more aggressive then the others. Maybe it's a rooster?

    This is the one that is supposed be a Blue Cochin:

    I only see 1 with feathered legs, so that first one is not a cochin. The white is not a leghorn--too much additional color. None of them look like future partridge either, unless there are chipmunk stripes I can't see. I can't say about roos at this point

    You may have a couple of roos there.

    White one is probably a white rock roo.

    Might have a hamburg there also.

    What breeds does the farm have and do they keep them separate?

    Quote:She told me that two were cochins, which is obvious with the feet feathers. But she said one cochin was a blue and the other was a partridge, people have suggested otherwise. The other one (the bigger one, whom I believe may be a rooster too) she straight told me she didn't know what it was. I don't know exactly what she had. It is all new to me. But I will love them either way, well I may not be able to keep the roo if that is what he is. I have been told it is against Town ordinance.

    Not knowing the breeds she has and if they are separate makes them hard to identify.....most farms don't separate them by breed, in my experience....maybe you can post pics in a couple of week and we can get a better idea
