    Looking for a little help confirming the breeds of our first little flock.

    Referring to the first photo, we assume the dark hen in the middle is a sex link, but would like a little input on the other two - or correction if we're wrong about that!

    The second photo shows a bit more pattern on the golden chicken we assume to be a hen...though, she has been getting really loud lately. Hmm...

    The hen in the rear of the first photo has feathered feet, if that helps any.

    Thanks in advance!

    The center "hen" is a gold laced Wyandotte cockerel. The brownish one in the back is a partridge Cochin pullet. The 3rd I think could be a white laced red Cornish pullet.

    I agree-- a white laced red Cornish pullet, a gold laced Wyandotte cockerel, and a partridge Cochin pullet.
