    What kind of combs are on the barred rocks one looks like a dominique, the white one looks almost like a light sussex, the red looks almost like a production red(a red hybrid sexlinked).

    I'll have to take good pictures of each one :). I just got them yesterday from a friend.

    I believe you're right about all of your breeds except the australorp... If the bottom of her feet are pink, you're right, but if they're yellow she may be a jersey giant. Either way, they're lovely ladies.

    That is a great point about the black hen. I don't think I'll be catching her soon to check her feet, but if I have a chance I will have to look to see if they are white/pink or yellow. She is tinier than the rest so I didn't think she could be a "giant" but maybe she's growing slower because of it. We'll see when I catch her.[​IMG]

    Is it possible she's hatchery stock?

    I am sure she's nothing fancy so most likely so... I just wanted to know for my own amusement. All birds are just pets who give me breakfast. I have no interest in breeding them or anything like that. Thank you for your input ;)

    She could also be a Black Plymouth Rock, which would explain the yellow legs and the size. All of my chickens are hatchery stock, I meant no offense, just that they don't always look the way they should [​IMG]

    Good point Grub Digger, maybe even a black Plymouth bantam? It's hard to tell with these little black beauties I guess :D. And no offense taken at all. Thank you for your suggestions.
