    All these girls are just under 5 months. They were from a mix from MPC. If you know what they are, please let us know..We have ideas, but aren't sure.

    This black one, has white lobes, black feet and much smaller than the rest (thus the pic with the rock for comparison). She's also, very very skittish...she'll always put something between me and her.

    This one has a rose comb...Looks much like the other two white and black ones, but different combs. Hmm

    Then other two white/black ones with single comb.

    Unusual Barred rock? Looks like a very white Barred Rock.

    Here's a closer pic of the 'whiter rock' There's a black girl behind her, she's huge and all black, thinking black sex link?

    And this GL Wyandote, was "supposed to be a girl", but hey, nobody's perfect.

    So whatcha think we have here amongst all these hens?

    I feel like I've heard that the lighter barred rocks are males- comb is larger on that one than your other BR too... I'm no expert though [​IMG]

    That barred one with all the white looks like a black sexlink cockerel to me. Its definitely not a pure BR. I think the first one is a Blue Andalusian and you could have a couple more of those. White earlobes are what make me think that on the blue girl in the first pic.

    Blue, splash and black andalusians. The black might be a minorca though.
    Barred Rock.
    Columbian wyandottes.
    The big black girl could be a Jersey Giant, Australorp or sex-link like you said.
    Not sure what happened with that really light barred one!
    Wyandotte roos are quite docile- if you can keep a roo he'd be fine for your flock.

    That light Barred Rock must just be a mutation/cross, it is a she. The only male you have is the GLW

    The white looking ones, the gray one, and the first black one are all Andalusians.

    The barred one is indeed a cross.

    The black headed white ones are Columbian Wyandottes, some might be Columbian Rocks too.

    Pic #1 - Blue Andalusion
    Pic #2 - Splash Andalusion
    Pic #3 - Splash Andalusion
    Pic #4 - Black Andalusion (MPC doesn't sell Black Minorcas)
    Pic #5 - Columbian Wyandotte
    Pic #6 - Columbian Wyandotte (MPC doesn't sell Columbian Rocks, and some hatchery Wyanottes have single combs)
    Pic #7 & #8 - I would say Black Sexlink rooster, except MPC doesn't sell BSLs? [​IMG] Maybe a Barred Rock with very unusual coloring?
    Pic #9 - Gold Laced Wyandotte rooster

    This was the only thing I wasn't sure about, I've heard of hatchery Wyandottes having single combs on other varieties, but not sure on the colombian. guess anything's possible! I don't think that white barred bird is a roo, some weird mutant barred hen. Nice mixed flock!
