    I'd say the australorp looking bird is a female. The duck is a pekin. The reddish-black one I can't see very clearly, but I'm not seeing signs of roo in that pic. The first one has me thrown. No idea of breed. White legs, red ears, different coloring... I'd guess a mix of some sort, but pretty.

    It looks like the two on the bottom may be French Marans...they have similar coloring to the cuckoo marans and looks like they have leg feathering as well. If they are in fact, the girl should lay fairly dark brown eggs, or brown eggs with very dark speckles.

    Are the bottom two bantams? They look like barred Cochin bantam crosses.

    The black one looks like a pullet.

    The one with red, looks like a partridge Cochin or a partridge cochin cross, and looks like a rooster based upon coloring, but would need to see its head.

    I don't know much about geese, but I generally assume the stockier build white ones are Embden.

    The barred birds are Cochins.
    You can tell by the tail set, and the feathers on the feet, and the yellow legs.

    tfpets Mmm, tastes like chicken

    Quote:They have yellow legs, that would exclude them as Cuckoo Marans. Also, their barring is a little more precise than the "Cuckoo" patterning of the Marans. Your birds are beautiful though!

    I am going to add that they seem almost like Barred Cochins, the low bodies, feather legs, and they have cochin faces (the red around the eyes and faces)...I saw some in a magazine not to long ago, close resembled their shape!

    Good luck!
