    I have 6 chickens that I got from an amish auction. I have posted about their breeds earlier and so far i think i have a dorkingX hen and a silked pair.

    This post is for coloration, but anyone has an idea on breed, please post

    Sorry I can't help with colors, but Peter looks like a hen to me....? Joe looks like some kind of Game Hen?

    I LOVE Butterbean! Beautiful.

    Buff Barred means to have NO black on the body. [​IMG]

    The first is indeed a Dorking X (a Silkie would carry on dark pigmentation, a different comb, a small topknot, etc) and a blue version of brown-red (crowwing / black copper)

    The second is Wheaten x Duckwing in color, and likely a Game/Easter Egger cross.

    The third is a mutt, and has a blue barred coloring with birchen in there as well.

    The fourth is unlikely to be a Phoenix, but its color is duckwing based.

    The fifth has a gold partial columbian cuckoo/barred coloring.

    The sixth also looks to be a partially barred blue birchen mutt.

    The fourth is unlikely to be a Phoenix, but its color is duckwing based.

    His name is Phoenix

    Joe, the second one, lays light brown/pink eggs

    Peter has saddle feathers and his tail feathers are starting to grow out.
    his's young, here's a few more pics of him.
