    #5 is a gold laced wyandotte pullet.
    #6 looks like a black australorp pullet.

    That's all I know. [​IMG]

    #1- I agree- RIR rooster
    #3- possibly golden comet
    #4- I think is a gold laced wyandotte rooster (I think I see the lacing on his sides). Does he have the lacing on his chest? I could be wrong, but that's my opinion.

    I coulda swore that that was a hen- never seen "it" crow or act like a rooster??? It was setting on a few eggs a few weeks ago?? IDK? I am getting a few white eggs out of these chickens- Correct me if im wrong, but don't white rocks produce brown eggs? Could they be leghorns ( I have 4 hens that look the same as the roosters, but no pic)??

    Quote:It may be a young, late blooming roo - and sometimes, they just don't crow. But there is NO mistaking those saddle and hackle feathers - see how dark and shiny they are, compared to the body? I've caught my roo in the laying boxes before - nothing unusual to me.

    Are you sure the eggs are white? Eggs can be cream, a VERY lightly tinted egg that looks white.
