    This is a sentimental pic of my grandfather's chickens. I say sentimental because he's gone now and I loved his chickens. I am actually in the pic with him as well as my two sisters however I cut all of us out so you all would be able to see the chickens better. Anyway, it would be good to know at least one of the breeds in the pic so that I can add it to my flock and raise it in his memory and honor. Hope someone can help, thanks!

    The black ones kinda look like like Black Australorps to me, one is also kinda Rhode Island Red shaped, can't tell on the brownish ones, maybe a mix? Hope this helps,[​IMG] its hard to see the chickens in the picture though

    Unfortunately, the picture is too small and pixelated to accurate decipher the breed...sorry!

    Agreed. The (black I think) birds may be Black Australorps or a similar breed, but we just can't tell from the photo.

    Thank you all for trying. Yes, that very well could be an australorp. I'm also thinking that the rooster in the pic is a welsummer. Any thoughts?
