    Can anyone help me identify the breeds of these birds? If this isn't the place for this thread I'm sorry. Please advise, moderator and I will take it down.

    I'll be in the barn!
    The first three photos show black Austrolorps.

    The first I would guess is a black Minorca. The other is a silver Leghorn. Did they come from McMurray?

    The last one could be a silver leghorn or a silver duckwing hard to say they're very close looking

    I really hope that is a silver leghorn. I got them from tractor supply and they were all midslabeled. I won't go there again. I'd get eggs from McMurray or the like next year. Thanks for helping identify these!

    Looks like a white Rock. Definitely a cockerel.
