    I think I have Cochins, Brahma, EE and Lakenvelder? I think! Does anyone agree with that or see anything else?[​IMG]

    I see blue Cochin, buff Cochin, dark Brahma, Sicilian buttercups, Easter Eggers, silver Leghorn, Lakenvelders, and I think the skinny little one looking at the camera is a BB red modern Game. Plus the obvious white crested black Polish.

    Thank you so much, but now I am intrigued. I know the Blue and Buff Cochins, the Dark Brahma, the Easter Eggers and Lakenvelders but have no clue which ones might be Sicilian Buttercups or the Silver Leghorn (ok, maybe know which one that might be) Can you direct me to which pictures you saw them?

    In the group picture, the two orange/black ones towards the top right look like buttercups. There's a 3rd, under the feeder behind the Brahma. Does she have a single comb or a buttercup comb? If she has a single comb she's a Campine. A buttercup's comb looks like this:

    The silver Leghorn is the one in front of the Lakenvelder in the 2nd picture/

    I love this picture!

    I agree with keesmom. You got a very nice assortment, I may have to order that in the spring.

    Thank you so much! I thought those were EE's. From what you said and from what I have researched I have at least one Buttercup, and possibly 3 Campine's. This one is an unmistakable Buttercup, and until you mentioned it I had never heard of the breed. (btw, as you can tell my girls LOVE my camera, I think it is the pink iphone case)

    Thank you for your help

    Yup, that's a Buttercup! We got 3 for the first time this year. Extremely nosy about what you are doing as you can tell. We get that look all the time too.
