    #1 - Barred Rock Hen and Barred Rock Cochin Hen (mix). The rest I think are just mixed breeds! My only rooster in the middle.


    #2 - I'm thinking Rhode Island Reds, Araucana's, and Black Australorp.


    #3 - 4 of the white hens have the regular single comb. The other 8 white hens have a rose comb?
    Any ideas on what my white hens are?

    The white hens with the single combs may be white rocks. Pretty birds :)

    The hen on the far left looks to be a possible welsummer, but I can't tell with the bad pic. Barred rock hen, don't know on the rooster with the bad picture, barred rock/cross hen, black hen could be anything (need a better picture), and a buff orpington cross or bad hatchery buff orpington hen.

    The "RIR's" are actually production reds. Also, those are not Araucanas - they are mutt Easter Eggers. Araucanas have tufts, not muffs like they do. Ameraucanas have muffs but those girls don't meet Ameraucana standards. She could be a black australorp or a jersey giant... australorps have pink bottomed feet, giants have yellow.

    The white hens are white Wyandottes. The ones with single combs could be white rocks, but single combs are known to pop up in wyandotte stock. Unless their body type is significantly different I'd say they're all wyandottes.

    The first photo is of the chickens we've had for years. :) So, I know they're all mixes, other than that one lone Barred Rock.

    The rest I got from someone who wanted to get rid of them. He didn't know what they were. But thanks! :)
