    If anybody could help me determining the chickens I have. I "rescued" these chickens and don't know what breeds they are. I was told they were purchased at a local Agway as chicks and that's all I know.
    For reference as the picture doesn't show it well, the brown chicken in the back is the largest with the two tan chickens being just slightly smaller. The brown and black chickens are small with the white and black chicken being about half the size as the larger brown one.

    I can't make the combs out at all on the two buff-colored birds. It might be a rose which would indicate Buff Wyandottes. The larger chicken in the back also appears to have rose comb so I'm going to guess Partridge Wyandotte. The two brown and speckled hens together in the first image are definitely, certainly, absolutely Sicilian Buttercups. That comb is a dead give away. The white and black bird that is a similar size and build could be an Egyptian Fayoumi. I can't tell what style comb she's sporting though.

    Do me a favor and take some pictures where the sun isn't setting on them and distorting their features so badly. Photos where you're kneeling with the sun overhead and not behind you would be best to give a better view of the bird.

    It's a really pretty flock of birds! I LOVE Fayoumis and Buttercups, I'm just afraid they need more ranging room than I'm prepared to give them, so I stick with lazy breeds like Orps.

    Just over a year old.
     
  10. 3 and 4 look like Campines since they have white earlobes (if those are single combs).
