    Hi everyone, im new here. As the titled says i want to know what breed my birds are. believe it or not, the hatchery here only sells chicken under 2 headings (layer and meat). i adopted a feral i found that was sleeping on our trees at night then got my next 2 from a friend and later added 5 younger ones. unfortunately 1 from each age group died. here are some pics:
    the oldest hen --->Geraldine (my first-> was a feral) and her 2 3-week old chicks
    [​IMG]
    the father-->Monster (from the original 2)

    the 4 younger:
    (i thought i got all pullets but apparently got 2 hens and 2 rooster)
    the 2 hens are feather legged. roosters are not. all from same hatch

    Sry about poor quality of pics. had to lock them in the coop. they were NOT happy
    wanted to add pics of the 2 chicks but they are only 3 weeks old and WAY too scared of me at this point

    The red rooster Looks like a RIR to me. White one maybe a leghorn?

    at first i thought they might be chantecler since the name of the farm i got them is literally "chantecler". but then as they grew i started seeing features that didnt match the breed
