    I could use some help ID'ing these three chickens. The first should be a roo as he started crowing the other day, but I can't pin down the breed. The other two definitely look like hens, but I need help with the breeds on them. When I bought the bunch I was told I was getting RIR, barnevelder, americana, and barred rocks. The RIR are easy to pick out of the bunch and can be seen in the background. All were born 8/1/10, which makes them about 18 weeks old.

    Some look like black astrolaups, (the spelling is something like that)[​IMG] and a few also look like new hampshire reds. the ones with the small combs are hard to tell though.

    That top picture of the reddish rooster has some barring in it? Where did you get these chickens? They appear to be mixed breeds for the most part. Don't take me wrong I think they are pretty. To me most mixed breed chickens are the prettiest there are.
