    Hi, i came across this site while trying to identify what breed of chickens I have.
    I have 4, 2 appear similar to Orpingtons and 2 resemble shamo or aseel.

    I have attached a few pictures, unfortunately I didn't really get a good picture of the black and white one.

    Thanks

    [​IMG] I think the brown ones appear to be mixes, but the black and white one does resemble my Aseel. Can you get a better shot?

    Hi liz, thanks for your response.
    I've attached a few more pics, not great sadly but I will try and get pictures in the next few days. The brown and white one is very similiar to the black one though. The second picture shows it in a more vertical pose.

    Bit more info: All four are around 9-10 months and two have started laying.

    I don't see Orpingtons, Shamo or Aseel. I see mixed breed birds right off, but better pics would sure help. A clear profile shot of each bird, in good light, including their legs and combs.

    Where did you get these birds? That usually helps narrow things down, also.

    Hi Donrae,
    I got these from my dad. He hatched them from an incubator and has loads of different chickens so they could be mixed breeds.

    Better pictures...look forward to your views. Ps. I fear they also have mites as they scales look messy so have started treating for that. So would be good to hear views on their scales?

    Thanks
