    I was given 3 roos and 2 hens this weekend. They are settling in fabulously might I add. [​IMG]
    But I don't know what they are. These were a surprise hatch for the lady so she isn't sure either.
    I know that 2 of the roos are the same breed.

    who did I get the eggs from? Wait, I'm thinking- it was 4 heathers mom. The other ones i got in the swap after that stayed here. I always said the one looked like a barred rock or dominique, she said the others were silver spangled hamburgs, but I have no idea, oh, and brown leghorn. They look like they settled in happy!

    Check here, I think your black/white is a young Marans pullet. See here for pics.

    Barred Rocks have a much sharper line where the colors meet, like this .

    I'm unsure as to the others. I'm going to stay posted to find out! [​IMG]

    None of them look like silver spangled hamburgs to me.
    Brown Leghorn cross maybe?

    They are all mutts except for the BR hen.
