    I'm helping care for the small flock at my kids' elementary school. They have four hens, about 6 months old. Can you help me sort out what breeds they are? They are all standard sized but one (Tiny Tim, who is a banty). Chirp must be an Ameracauna but I don't know about the black hen (Blackie, possibly Ameracauna?) and the other brown hen (Maggie). Any help would be appreciated! I want to tell the school kids what breeds they are.

    You guys are awesome! Thank you so much! The only one I'm still not sure about is the banty. She doesn't look like an OEG to me. I saw a photo of a buff banty Plymouth Rock and she looked more like those but I'm really unsure. Here is another photo of the one in question.

    I'm not a bantam person, but I can tell you that bird is not a Rock, bantam or not. Way wrong body type.

    Maybe American Game bantam.

    Thanks, donrae. I think you are right. This is a sleek, slim bird.

    She could be an American Game.
