    Hey Everyone,

    I just recieved a few chickens for free and I'm not sure what they are, I know that 80% of there flock consisted of silver duckwing Old english game bantams they also had bantam barred rocks and some others, can you give me your opinions on these chickens breed and gender.

    dont know there age, but thats my full grown oegb hen right behind them. i think this is a rooster.

    My guess all hens, didnt see hackle or saddle feathers, what kind, nice kind, they are either mutts or industrial/production quality.

    I am not very good at telling the batams, but I guess they could be barred rocks, the comb is right, and even though I think the standard calls for yellow legs, these could legs that have changed color from laying.

    I'd say they are cross between the OEG and the Barred Rock bantams and both cockerels. I had some crosses between a cuckoo Marans rooster and some wheaton colored EE hens and the roosters came out like that and grew in some gold color in the saddle and hackle feathers which I see coming through on those.
