    Greetings all! This is my first post but I have been lurking for the last 2 years learning from everyone here. Thanks to everyone for sharing on this forum, it has been very helpful in us having our own backyard flock. We started with 6 red star hens from Tractor Supply and they have been great. This year we decided to order the "Ornamental Layer Collection" from MM and they actually sent 35 with the order. We got lucky because all of the peanuts were hens and of the same "ornamental" nature. We ended up with about 15 EE's and about 6 buff cochins, which is pretty cool, but I cant identify some of the others.

    Here is what I think of the images below:

    1. Barred rocks
    2. Silver laced wyandotte roo? This was the "free exotic" chick (I think).
    3. ???
    4. ???
    5. ???
    6. Some sort of wyandotte
    7. Black cochin
    8. Same bird as #4
    9. Silver phoenix

    What do you guys think?

    Thanks in advance!!

    #2 could be silver spangled hamburg. That comb looks funky for a wyandotte.

    Wow thanks for the replies. #1 for sure is the Dominique. Now that you point it out its pretty obvious. Do you think #2 is a hen or a roo?

    My thoughts also. It is feathering out like a Silver Spangled Hamburg.
