    Puff is a silkie. I am going to guess your feather legged chicks are cochin or cochin mixes. I am sure someone more familiar with these breeds will chime in soon. [​IMG]

    Here are my thoughts...
    Winnie - buff Brahma cockerel
    Piper - really need a better pic (a straight level side on shot would be best) so we can better see the stance, wing carriage, and legs. Some possibilities would be Dutch, OEG, or Japanese but there are others too
    Ernie - light Brahma cockerel
    Suey - blue Cochin (can't make a guess on the gender - need a closer pic of the head)
    Sunny D - golden neck D'Uccle cockerel
    Puff - can't tell a whole lot about gender yet

    ok that worked. so now here are the others. Ernie and Willie turned out to be roos, so we gave them away.
    Here is my other roo, Sunny D

    Sadly Puff and Sunny D are boys.

    Sunny D is a stunning roo. [​IMG]

    Suey looks to be a pullet.

    Puff looks to be a cockerel based on that comb development. [​IMG]

    So, revamping what I said earlier... I think Piper might be a Minorca pullet. She doesn't seem to have the right wing carriage and stance for the others I mentioned.

    Oh, and Evelyn looks like a game hen of some sort. I'm not familiar with the standard size and am just becoming familiar with the Old English Game bantams. They come in soooo many colors.
