    Does anyone know what kind of rooster this is ? He is such a gentle young fella. I got him at 4h auction as baby last year.

    here is my red hen, hatched from eggs I bought last year. She is full size, showing her best side. I tried to get a better picture but she kept turning around

    Not sure about the roo, but i'd say the big hen is either a gold/red star or a Buff Orpington. The bantam may be a RIR....

    1 - Is a Ancona Rooster
    2 - Is a Buff Orpington
    3 - She could also be a "Red" Old English Game Bantam ( She's not a Rhode Island Red, wroung leg color )

    Hi, you have some pretty chickens. Is that white hen a White Leghorn?

    Your black and white rooster looks like an Ancona.
    Your brown hen looks exactly (size, color) like our New Hampshire Red hen.
    I'm not sure about the banty.
