    Thank you!

    Only 2 wrong
    The second one is an Ancona
    And the 3rd one is a Jersey giant. I know, it is hard to tell apart.

    Some observation... In the 3rd pix I see some chimes in the background. I'm borderline fanatic for chimes. Have 5 sets permanently playing in my yard, and a few extra I hang up now and then. One is tuned to play Amazing Grace notes. When the wind is right, It sounds close to the actual song.
    In the last pix, I definitely can tell which is the Jersey Giant now. [​IMG]

    I know looks a lot like a jersey giant but our jerseys aren't full grown, that is our astrolorp (spelling..) She is big, she was broody and packedn a few pounds when she was broody
