    Just picked up 9 hens and 2 roosters. Not sure what type they are. Any thoughts?

    The second photo looks like my Black Australorp (except mine hasn't really gotten her comb and wattles yet).

    What color are the bottom of feet on the black ones? If there yellow than their Jersey Giants, if white than Aussies!

    The rooster is a mixed breed bird, which easily lends itself to the hens also being mixed breed birds.
