    This is our first flock of backyard chickens and it has been such a great experience to raise our 6 girls from baby chicks to hens now laying eggs! My only unfulfilled chicken wish is to know their breeds! I have attached a picture of each hen, they are 6 months old. Thanks everybody!

    [​IMG]Welcome from Georgia!! #1 is a Silver Laced Wyondotte. #2 is a White Leghorn. #3 and #4 I am not sure about and # 5 looks like a Red Sex Link. I am sure someone else will know what 3 and 4 are. They are pretty girls!!

    I agree with the others [​IMG]
    #1 is a SLW, #2 WLeghorn, #3 I thought maybe Barnvelder, #4 has the blocky 'pit bull' look of a Cornish, so gold-laced maybe? #5 is a lovely RSL

    I was assuming 2 of the six must be the same breed, just a guess though.[​IMG]
