    I don't know about the 1st or 3rd, but the 2nd looks like Golden Sebright and the 4th looks like a speckled sussex.

    1 looks like a Belgian booted variety, possible a porcelain d'uccle, I would need to see a better picture though, preferably from the front
    2 is a golden Sebright
    3 is a silver duckwing oegb
    4 looks to be a Mille fleur d'uccle but I would like to see a picture of her from the front as well to be certain

    #1 Is a Porcelain d'Uccle cockerel.
    #2 Is a very poor quality golden Sebright.
    #3 Is a Silver Duckwing OEGB.
    #4 Is a Mille Fleur d'Uccle pullet.

    I would like to know though. If you didn't know the breeds of these birds, why are you showing them? [​IMG]

    #1 is definitely a porcelain. You can see the peachy color as well which isn't on a blue.

    The rest, I haven't looked up as adults much, more trying to sex my peeps of a couple of those breeds, lol.

    I'm curious how/why you'd show if you don't know the breeds a week beforehand, too. Not being nasty about it, I'm just not sure how that can even be possible?

    #1: Porcelain Belgian Bearded D'Uccle
    #2: Golden Sebright.
    #3: Silver Duckwing Old English Game Bantam
    #4: Mille Fleur Belgian Bearded D'Uccle

    Just a note: Your Sebright is not show-quality; it will get disqualified when shown. Sebrights should be hen-feathered. This means that the males shouldn't have pointed sickle, hackle, and back feathers like other roosters. Instead, they will have the rounded feathers of a hen. When showing chickens, male feathering in a hen-feathered breed is a disqualification

    Your other chickens, from what I can tell, have no disqualifications. But they too are not that great of show-birds.

    Still, good luck at your show!

    #1 is a Porcelain Belgian Bearded D'Uccle
    #2 is a pet quality Golden Sebright. He will likely get disqualified at a show, as he has sickle feathers in his tail. Sebrights are supposed to be hen feathered (that means no hackles or sickle feathers in the male).
    #3 is a Silver Duckwing Old English Game Bantam. How old is he? As a heads-up, if he's over a year of age (so, a cock), he'd get disqualified at a real show. Cock OEGB are supposed to be dubbed. This means that their comb, wattles, and earlobes are cut off.
    #4 is a Millie Fleur Belgian Bearded D'Uccle

    Have fun at the show!

    As for how I will show them our fair doesn't require us to know the breed of the chicken but you get extra points if you do.
    As for why I am showing them without knowing what breed they are is because last year I was showing regular size chickens and I was having problems showing them. so this year I wanted to show bantams and TSC had mixed bantams for a good price so I got 6 of them.
