    Mixed breeds.
    First pic--front rooster has maybe Easter egger, but what's up with that comb? Back pic is a red/barred mixed breed
    Second pic--again mixed breed roosters. Some red and barring in the second bird.
    Third pic--left hen is barred mix, the blue hen is the only bird that might be pure bred as far as I can see. She may also be a mixed breed, just a lucky color. I'm not sure what breed she may be--Marans was my first thought, but she has clean legs and that comb almost looks rosecomb. Could be a blue Wyandotte, but they have yellow legs.

    Bristow, ok

    I believe blue Wyandottes are allowed to have blackish legs and bottom of feet be yellow. Thought I read that somewhere.

    Thanks for the input!! Crazy thing is that these were all purchased eggs and sold as pure bred! Boy am I a sucker. Lol.

    It's really good to try to get a look at the parents, make sure they're pure and that they're separated, if possible, before you buy. But, they're really neat looking!

    I agree, they all look to be "Barnyard Breeds".:/
