    My friend's flock is about 6-8 months old and she acquired them from different people/places so she really doesn't know what she has. Can anyone help her?

    Mystery #1 - hasn't laid yet

    I'm not good enough at breeds to know what the first one is.

    I'm 95% sure the second one is a rooster....thats why no eggs.....[​IMG] Maybe a RIR or NH cross?

    The red one is a rooster. The chickens appear to be mixed breeds.

    #1 is an Easter Egger mix, but you can just call it an EE since they're mixed anyways

    #2 is a Standard Buff Cochin mix. Potentially a rooster.

    I guess I need to do more studying before the next quiz!
    I thought M.#1 looked a bit like my Australorp, Shadow. (How do you 3 figure EE, which features?)

    I had a rooster that look exactly like the red one! And I think it was a mixed cochin but I wasn't sure. So I think yours is a rooster too [​IMG].

    You know, I wouldn't be surprised if she's an EE/Australorp mix, because that was the impression I had until I saw her beard. Australorps are too lady-like to have any such feature [​IMG]
