    this is a pic of the rooster-the white with black/gray specks across his neck festhers and on his tail(can't think of the correct terms...) and a pic of a hen, maybe a RIR--she is rusty colored with some black specks across her neck feathers

    These 2 are cute as can be, the one is all black with feathered feet and the other is a gray/blue with feathered feet, they are also small, they are poofy kind of like a cochin

    Picture 1 looks like Porcelain D' Uccle bantams. 1 rooster 1 hen.
    Picture 2 looks like 2 hens, but the breeds are somewhat of a mystery. Could possibly Lakenvelder...but NOT typy at all on the white one. The brown one could be New Hampshire Red??? I'd say these two were production birds...BIG time.

    Picture 3 looks like black and blue Cochins...both females.

    Maybe the white/black one is a Delaware? Does it crow? It kinda looks girly [​IMG]

    TheNewMrsEvans, I thought that too, but she has slate colored legs...possibly a cross with a Delaware hen?

    Quote:glad to hear you guys think its a girl, It's actually kind of mean and he/she makes alot of noise, rules the coop--maybe just cus she/he is the biggest? Have not heard any crowing yet.

    Now that I've been watching more, the two little white ones do seem like 1 hen 1 roo, the one fluffs his neck feathers alot and stands tall.

    The rusty one is so friendly! I think shes the one laying the one egg I get a day!

    I thought those two others may be cochins, I had a cute little buff cochin before and he looked alot like those two.

    Looked at some of the breeds u suggested, and the little white ones sure do look like porcelain D'uccles, and the little poofy ones really look like cochins---so thats what I'll call them! The bigger white one i dont think is a lakenvelder, not enough black on the neck? And the rusty one I think may be a mix.
