I hope a very breed savy person can verify what breed some of my hens are.
Your list at the bottom looks accurate to me. You have some very nice birds, your roo is very impressive!
I'm not going to be much help, but that last hen with the black and white is very striking! Total eye candy.
Is that first buff one really a hen? Looks like a rooster to me... but, my first thought was a buff colored leghorn mix. I'm probably way off.
Buff Orpington, (kinda lanky though) and either Rhode Island Reds or New Hanpshire Reds, and the spotted one is either a Fuyoumi or a Hamburg mix.
I am looking at the legs of the first one and thinking skinny buff orpington. The second I am thinking rhode island reds. The third - don't know.
WOW you have some pretty birds.the last one looks just like my Silverlaced Hamburg in color not design wonder what he is mixed with..very perty man there
The first one, "buffy" we thought was a buff orpington.
The second set, "Penny & Agatha" we were told are RIR's but the have pink legs so I'm not so sure
The last one, "Speckles" we thought might be a hamburg, the black spots have a green irridescence when veiwed in full sunlight. Either that or the worlds biggest pigeon.
On behalf of Speckles, Thanks for the compliment.
That does not look like an Orp. By the white earlobe I'd say Buff Minorca instead.
The bottom pullet is a very nicely marked Silver Spangled Hamburg.
Nice looking group you have!
Quote:Hmmm.... Minorca, I'll have to look that one up, never heard of it (no suprise since I'm new to this)
The comb doesn't look right for a Minorca, mine had floppy combs like leghorns or Andalusians. Maybe her comb hasn't got big enough to flop over yet.
