    Your male looks like an Easter Egger. He looks like he's a Wheaten pattern to me.
    Hen 1- No clue
    Hen 2- Barnevelder or Partridge rock? Looks like the same as hen in picture 4
    Picture 3- Those are Guineas. Other than that I know nothing about them.
    Picture 5- Blue cochin? Does it have feathered feet?
    Picture 6- Looks like an Australorp
    Last picture- production red or hatchery RIR

    Black Australorp, the rest are what I figured, Yes the cochin has feathers on her feet. THe white one Which is now dead I think was just a mutt. Why do you think they are not regular Rhode Island reds?

    If you mean the ones that people keep saying are partridge rock, I do not think they are. True partridge rocks have lighter colored neck feathers. Both appear to have very dark feathers with penciling, which is why this is being suggested (as well as barnevelder, another dark penciled brown breed).

    BlazeJester I am confused by your post, you don't think that Hen 2 and 4 is a partridge rock?

    I was wondering Why they don't think the Rhode Island Red is a RIR?

    Hens 2 and 4 ARE partridge rocks, I have an entire flock of them and while SOME do have lighter feathers, some are very dark. The body shape also is exactly that of PRs. Congratulations on some beautiful birds [​IMG]. The PRs are extremely good layers!
