    The first may be a BB Red. The last hen looks like a wheaten. I'm not sure if that is the breed but it is the coloring. I don't have a clue on the black one. Games are great broodies and mothers!

    Wow, I actually have some hens I want to ID that look just like these birds. I have one with like a mullet though. I too think yours and mine are a type of game hen, hope you can get more info on what they are.

    thanks. i knew they were games because the fella i got them from that was all he had. but he had so many games he couldn't keep track and he was hard to understand and was hard of hearing so communication was poor.

    Aloha,

    I have my guesses......

    1st= BBR pattern hen

    2nd = Brassy black hen with gypsy skin color (Black shin)

    3rd= Wheaten hen


    They are all AGF crossed in or out depends on the breeder. Different strains of the breed, so that I can not determine. But beautiful birds none the less....
