    Not sure about the first ones, but the last looks just like my neighbors silver laced cochin pullets.

    I don't really have enough experience to make anything other than guesses on their breeds - but they are LOVELY!!!

    For the folks who are going to take a stab at it, would you mind adding WHY you are calling them the breeds that you are? That way, those of us who are not so experienced can learn what to look for.

    My own guesses:
    I agree, #1 looks like a favarolle - the beard, the lighter colored neck and the fluffy feet
    The firs pict of #2 had me thinking marans but all that lacing in it's wings makes me think maybe gold laced wynadotte?
    #3 looks like another gold laced wynadotte to me because of the YELLOW legs and the rose comb.
    I would have said sliver laced wynadotte for the last one but .. does it have feathered feet??
