Can't figure these out.

    We got a batch of fly tyers special from McMurray a few months back. I think I have figured out what all we got except for these.

    The first ones we thought were Silver Pencilled Wyandot roos. One thing that has thrown me for a loop is that of the 4 of these that we have, two of them have a fairly normal upright comb and the other two have what appears to be a rose comb. Otherwise they look exactly alike.

    Rose comb

    Normal comb

    One of each together.

    Any ideas?

    This picture I believe is of a Silver Pencilled Wyandot hen that came in this batch.

    The last one is the following pictures, not sure what they are going to be. Mostly orange with the irridecent green tail feathers.

    Any ideas would be welcome.

    That blue one – if it's got white earlobes, it's probably a Blue Andalusian.

    The white/black roos – the ones with upright combs are probably either Silver Pencilled Rocks or Silver Leghorns. If they're SPRs, they'll have red earlobes. If they're Leghorns, the earlobes will be white.

    The rose comb white/black roos – my guess would be Silver Pencilled Wyandottes, because of the comb.

    The barred roos – if their combs are upright, than probably Barred Rock or Cuckoo Marans (BRs have yellow legs, CMs have whitish legs).

    The hen – I think you're right on!

    The red roo – a New Hampshire Red?

    You have a pretty flock!

    I agree with everything wordgirl said, though the single combed black and white one is a SP Rock, not a leghorn.
