    These feathery friends have been so much FUN raising from chicks!
    We have been blessed that our children (& the neighbors kiddo's) have been hands on all along!
    We are all curious what breeds we do have.....If anyone can help we would GREATLY APPRECIATE IT.
    There are some multiple pics of these guys to try and show different colors, etc.
    The kids want to learn more about them online once we know.

    That quite the assortment you got there! Lovely birds!

    The first hen is a mix. Looks to me like a blue laced red Wyandotte/Silkie mix.
    Second is either a Jersy giant, or Australorp.
    Third, looks like a mix. A full body picture would help.
    Fourth, looks like a black Ameraucana hen.
    The fifth looks like a production red, or a cinnamon queen (which is basically the same).
    Sixth, is a mix, if I am right that I see feathered legs.
    Seventh, I'm not sure. A better picture(s) would help.
    And the last is an Ameraucana.

    X2 and the the black ameraucana looks like the top part of her beak is over grown. If it is I highly suggest you trim it at least a little becasue it can cause them difficulty and discomfort whole eating. You can do this by getting dog nail trimmers and cutting off little slovers. And have flour on hand just incase it starts to bleed, that will clot it.

    How old are these birds? And where did you get them--from a hatchery or back yard breeder? I'm just wondering if they're basically purebreds or a good chance of being mixed.

    1--my first thought was a gold laced Polish, but I'm not really good with tophatted breeds. She looks more blue than black?
    2--Australorp hen
    3--can't see the comb well, looks like a hatchery New Hampshire pending better pics
    4--Easter egger that really needs a beak trim
    5--some type of production red hen. need better pic to be more specific
    6--red sex link hen, again better pics are needed to be sure
    7--not sure
    8--Easter egger rooster in front. Is that some frizzled bird behind him? Pic doesn't get larger and I just can't tell.

    At first I thought It looked like that but i can't see it to be crossed. ALthough it could very well be sticking out on the otherside
