    Hi there - I think I've got 2 Buff Orpingtons and a Leghorn, but I'm not sure about the black one. And really hoping none are boys this time! I got them from a gal who is moving and can't keep them and she wasn't sure what breed they were, but they seem old enough that they would be crowing by now if they were boys. Thanks!

    Maybe she's an australorp cross? Those grey feathers around her face have me puzzled. None look like roos to me [​IMG]

    That black hen is a mix with some birchen coloring to her.
    I don't think the buff birds are orpingtons, truthfully. Can't see them well cause of the pics but they look mixed.

    But, everyone looks girly.

    I don't think the buffs are Orps, wrong color legs on one and that one also looks like a pea comb, should be a single for Orp.
