    I would like to ask help identifying the chickens in my flock. I have 8 adults and now 4 chicks. I think I have 6 hens and 2 roosters but I am not sure on one of them as to if it is a hen or not (the one in pictures 3 & 6)

    #7 is the one on the right, it is a rooster. The one on the right is chicken #1 [​IMG]

    I agree with Wyandottes7's guesses.

    I agree with Wyandottes7's guesses, except perhaps bird # 4. This bird is a Golden Campine, but I'm not sure that it's a rooster. Do you know how old it is?

    Are 4 and 7 the same bird? Agree they're likely Campines, and if the same age as the other birds, then pullets. Other than that, agree with Wyandottes7's list. That Leghron you're asking about is a definite female, and should be giving you lots of nice white eggs.

    4 and 7 are different birds but look very similar to each other. I feel confident both of those are roosters, but I could be wrong. I have 2 that crow (and I think it is those two) and the birds in pictures 4 & 7 each have a "spur" on their legs that none of the others have.

    Better pics of the Campines or whatever they are would help, profile shots including head, legs and tail. And age of the birds.

    Also, age wise I have no idea if they are the same age. After moving in we couldn't figure out how many chickens there were because they just roam free and it seemed we always had a different number when we fed them. I contacted the previous owner to ask how many chickens there were and was told 5 or six, we had counted 9 at one time. My guess is that they may have had young and never even realized it.
