Ok Well i went and pick this up from a guy that had about 500 chickens,all free range, all kinds and shapes, so i pick this ones up. now can you guys help me figure out what they are.
    #1 the black one's name is Cina
    #2 the white one's name is Snow white
    #3 the red one is Filomena
    #4 the red with fluffy head is Gertrudis
    #5 the one that looks with with black(kind of gray) Ramona.

  2. First off, are they bantams?
     
  3. The yellow one is a Buff orpington.
    The red one is probably a cinnamon queen.

    Santa Paula, Ca
    Looks like the one with the black tail might be a new hampshire hen. This is mine a couple of months ago.
