    Any ideas on breeds as well? At first I was convinced that the one in the second pic was a hen. Now, I am concerned that it is a cockerel. My older cockerel keeps chasing it around the yard and I have seen this one try to mount the hens. It even does the little mating dance before it tries...

    I was thinking EE on the first two also. Although, none are laying eggs as of yet. [​IMG] Should be soon, the slackers! They do have greenish legs.

    Any thoughts on the white/black ones breed?

    First too are EEs - the green legs and small muffs give that away.

    That red one could be a production red or a NHR she reminds me of my maggie when she was little. she is a New Hampshire red.

    The middle one looks like a young roo, the hackle feathers splayig out on the back make me think roo...maybe a mix breed. I am not sure.
