    maybejoey got chickenidous?

    Can any one tell the breeds and or sexes of the following chickens? I know the white on is a white leghorn(hen), and the black and brown one is an americana, aracana mix(hen) and the two redish ones are rhode island reds(both hens). But the rest are a mystery to me.[​IMG]

    Your black and white one looks like a White Crested Black Polish, maybe a hen because it does not look like the tail is right for a rooster. Maybe take some better side shots to give us a better idea.

    edited to say the polish is a rooster due to you saying he crows.

    The polish I'm not seeing any saddle feathers, I know nothing about this breed.
    posted at the same time as you.
    If he is crowing then he is a rooster.

    I'm tempted to say roo for the polish, because I've read a lot of people saying roos crests are more spikey and hens' crests are more poofy. That's spikey if ever I saw one!

    Looking at the side view it does look like you may have some saddle feathers draping on that polish there, which would indicate a rooster. If it is crowing then that it almost 100% rooster, however hens have been known to attempt to make crowing noises and act rooish. I have a Silver Laced Polish hen that has spikey feathers too but I always go off of saddle feathers to get an idea of the sex, my hen does not have any or anything like the draping that you have a bit of.

    The WCB Polish is definitely a roo - spiky crest and big red wattles. Hens have much softer, poofier crests. But if he is crowing and trying to mate with the other hens, was there ever really a question? [​IMG]

    The red/white is a sex link/red star/golden comet/cinnamon queen, whatever you call them. RIR dad and RIW mom.

    Third picture doesn't show up.
