    take out the first [​IMG]. [​IMG] Having it duplicated confuses the code.

    I think the first three look like barred rock standard X old english game bantam(crele) the third one being a rooster

    the fourth one White Rock X ?

    the fifth one Rhode Island Red X ?

    just guesstimats more based on coloring than anything else

    The barred ones look skinny, so my guess is california grey. Maybe the white is a cali white or leghorn if her tail is long. I am leaning towards mixes in this bunch though.

    First three look like Crele OE, probably large fowl.

    You got me on the others, though the brown/tan/salmon color one in the cage looks like a BB Red OE or a Brown Leghorn, hard to tell from the angle and they way it's sitting on the perch.

    It would be my guess that they are all mixes, too. The lady I got them from didn't care for the chickens at all. They were in the barn when she bought the place. they raise goats, and they also have a pot-bellied pig and guinea pigs in the barn. She didn't feed the chickens--they just ate whatever feed was in there, and foraged in the summer. She left them to do what they pleased, and they reproduced on their own. When there got to be too many chickens-they just slaughtered a bunch of them. They didn't eat them, and they didn't collect the eggs. My friend found out about them, and told me so I went and got them. In all honesty, I tried to find them another home first...but as you know--they're mine now.

    if I could just have an idea of what they might be--it would help.
