    Beautiful birds, looks like you bought my old flock. [​IMG] I've had all these but the OEG's. Here's what I think:

    1. Old English Game
    2. Brown Leghorn hen (ours was crazy too, we called her Crazy Chicken)
    3. Barred Rock hen
    4. Buff Orpington roo
    5. Rhode Island Red hen (Get a good roo to go with her, this deep red color is rare these days!)
    6. White Leghorns (With the wind blowing its hard to tell, but its looks like they've got the long straight tails.)
    7. Black Australorp roo

    I don't know anything about OEG's, but I can say that the rest of your flock looks excellent! [​IMG]

    1: Splash oegbs, 1 male 3 females

    2: Light brown leghorn pullet

    3: Pullet, if it has a single comb its a barred rock, if it has a rose comb it's a dominique.

    4: Buff orpington roo

    5: Rhode island red pullet

    6: White rocks (their combs are different because you have males and females, the females have the pink combs and the males have the larger red combs)

    7: Black australorp cockerel

    Oops sorry, thanks chickndaddy I thought it wasn't a straight comb because of it being so small. [​IMG] I learn something new everyday. [​IMG]

    ETA: But it still looks a lot like my Buckeye.... hehe [​IMG]
