    Hello! We just got our first flock of chickens, and I would love to figure out what kind of birds we have. Here are the mystery birds:
    1. [​IMG]
    2. [​IMG]
    3. What's the Rooster, a RIR???[​IMG]
    4. Another RIR??[​IMG]
    5. EE? [​IMG]
    6. This Rooster and hen are small, half the size of the other chickens: [​IMG]

    Well, I am not as experienced as most on here with the breed guessing game, but here goes my shot.

    Picture 1 and 5 look like EE
    Picture 2 looks like a black star or production black or something along those lines
    Picture 3 is a RIR hen
    Picture 4 is a RIR rooster
    Picture 6 is a leghorn rooster? bantam?
    Picture 7 I am not too sure about.

    Hope this helps. I am sure someone will be along soon to correct me on a couple of these.

    OMG, I had to go check my coop to make sure you hadn't stolen my birds! The first five look exactly like mine!

    First pic looks like my red sex link.
    Second appears to be my black langshan cross with my Buff Orpington
    Third is clearly my RIR rooster
    The fourth looks like my RIR hen
    The fifth is a carbon copy of a hen that wandered into my yard one day and never left (I have no idea where she came from or her breed but she's very pretty and lays tiny eggs).

    U sure you didn't steal mine?

    Yeah I agree with you Mikarod I still stand by my decision that it is a white Japanese pair
