    [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG] Sorry not the best pics. I know I have some Dominikeers but the rest I have no clue what are. The Rooster with the orange head is the mean 1. The pretty blue looks scary but he's laid back. I'm trying to find a good pic of just the mean roo to find out what type he is.

    Lots and lots of roosters.

    I'm not sure your dominiques are really that. Best I can tell it looks like they have straight combs, that makes them barred rocks.
    Buff orp roo and maybe hen.

    Welsummery looking hen

    some red hens

    a silver laced something lol.

    I think that first rooster is a Partridge Cochin. In the other shots I"m pretty sure I see feathered legs on him.

    2- I'm seeing EE, Buff Cochin or Buff Orp? (can't see the feet), Production Red, Partridge Cochin, Barred Cochin or Barred Rock? Do I see feathers on some of their feet?

    thanks. I'll take some better pics tomorrow & make sure I get their feet. A few of them have feathered legs. We don't have as many roosters now thankfully. I'm glad I can put a "name" to my pretty blue boy. He has lots of feathers on his feet, he looks intimidating with that sharp beak but so far he's been laid back.
    I guess the mean 1 is the EE, are they normally aggressive or is it just him?
