My ten year old would like to know the breed of Edward, if possible. He was brought home from a 3rd grade school project (my son wanted to give them a good home and we were looking into organic eggs anyway) with a hatchmate pullet, and very soon he will go home to a country farm with 40 hens for his picking. We would love to know what he is, though. He is wonderful with kids, which may be his greatest attribute if we can't figure him out. LOL. I am thinking black orphington, from reading and looking at photos, but we are SO new to this whole BYchickening thing. hahaha! Thanks for your help. The gal behind him is his hatchmate, and the white gal behind HER is a SLW, or so the store said so, and she hatched a few days after these two. I allowed my 5 sons to have THREE hens, we prayed that all would be girlies, but Edward had other ideas. I happen to think they are beautiful, iridescent feathers, smooth yellow legs, and the female has no other coloration coming in.
