    These birds were given to me and I'm not exactly sure what they are:
    Rhode Island Red? lays regularly, light brown egg and all the roos love her. She's 3-4 years old.

    Ameraucana or Araucana? She lays mint green eggs on occasion and she's 2 years old.

    Old English Game Bantam hen, with roo from someone else, they love each other! 2-3 years old.

    Mutt Roo, very nice, pretty guy, doesn't bother kids, likes the bantam hens. He's a year old.

    Thanks for your input, I have another roo and some black girls I'll post when I get some photos.

    Not a clue. I don't know breeds very well, but I am thinking maybe not a RIR. I thought they were darker red. Maybe a Comet of some kind?

    The last roo is full size, not bantam though. Is this the one you were calling brassy back?

    I would agree with you on your guesses on the breeds, except for the first one you called a rhode island red. I think that it is probably a red sex link, the reason I think that is not a rir is the white in the tail feathers. Btw Your chickens look very nice. [​IMG]

    #1- red/gold sexlink

    #2- Easter egger

    #3- Blue red/blue breasted red OEGB hen, the rooster looks like a bad black tailed buff jap, but it almost looks like he has slate legs, so possible nankin?

    #4- Polish cross, maybe with a game. I say this because he has a little beard/muff, white earlobes, a tassel, and a game type in the back end.

    Quote:Oohhh, yes.. brassy back is the coloring, he's close to it. I'd say he's a game mix, maybe standard old english or american.

    Think your first hen may be a production red. But everything looks like they have been covered!
