    Curious if anyone knows what breed this is? A few of these chickens belonged to a family member that passed away and I was fortunate enough to get her chickens.

    Looks like a blue Orpington rooster to me. Look at the bottoms of the feet-- if they're white or pinkish white then Orpington, if yellowish then probably a cross.
