    UPDATED PHOTOS ON SECOND PAGE

    I just got 10 new hens and was wondering what breeds they are? I am pretty sure there is a barred rock, 3 rhode island reds, a brown leghorn and an araucana but the others are giving me more trouble i am thinking silver laced wyandotte and an australorp but the last two I have no idea. sorry their coop is a mess- it is all clean now. I had just dropped them in it while it was too dark to clean after picking them up but i cleaned it up today.
    thanks :)

    The one on the top right looks like a gold laced wyandotte. I don't think you have an Auracana - the white bird is the one I'm assuming you're talking about and it doesn't seem to have tufts. Could be Ameraucana, but also could be Easter Egger.

    I am thinking it is the white one in the nest box and it does have tufts I will see if i can get a better photo of her. I will update tomorrow

    Fluffy feathers around the beak, beards, are what Ameraucanas and Easter Eggers have. (and a couple of other breeds)

    Tufts are huge feathers that stick out from their cheeks going towards the back of their heads.

    Your looks like it has a beard.

    i know its a lot but can you take pics of individuals from the side as close as you can? be a lot easier to see the birds

    i see silver and golden laced wyandottes, barred rock, and production reds...cant see all of them to say about some

    yep they look more like the pic you posted. I will round everyone up and do a photo shoot tomorrow :) I love photography so hopefully they will sit still for me and I can get some good up close photos for everyone.
