    The first one looks like a barred buff orpington, but I could be wrong. AS I am a noobie

    The first is a Lemon Cuckoo Orpington.

    Do these beautiful birds keep the good natured temperament of the plain Jane buff orps?
    because I wouldn't mind spicing up the flock... I just do not want aggressive chickens mixed in with the meek.

    Why is it lemon cuckoo rather than buff cuckoo?

    The last photo looks more like a gold laced wyandotte, although I don't think type is quite correct for a wyandotte--not my breed so I am not certain on that--anyways, comb is wrong for an orpington.

    oh I just had a thought, if someone whated other colors, they could get in touch with the breeders of these birds and ask them how they did it.
