    OK, I have pics of some of these guys as babies and need to ID before I butcher them. A few I think are girls too.

    [​IMG] I think White Leghorn

    I think Black Australorp

    Golden Buff/Comet

    Barred Rock - I think

    No Clue

    And I think these are girls:
    Barred Rock Girl?

    White Rock Girl?

    White rock Girl or boy?

    Thanks so much!

    Here are my guesses:

    One looks like a white rock rooster. Not a leghorn. He looks too cuddly to be any of the scrawny, have a constant panic attack, leghorn roos I've had.

    Two/3 austrolop? rooster

    4 buff orp roo b/c of white legs

    5 Barred rock roo

    6 not sure : roo

    7 not sure : roo

    8 Barred rock (BR) roo

    9 : white rock hen

    10 white rock hen

    So the Golden Buff/Comets are buff Orpingtons.
    The last one is definitely a hen. Post a hind pic of the 1st barred rock hen as I think I see pointy saddle feathers indicating a roo.

    I thought the last barred rock was a girl because she is from the same group and has such smaller comb and waddles than the others. I actually have 2 with smaller combs and waddles and about 6 with larger.

  6. Your 6/7 (no clue) is a golden laced something. The last two are White Plymouth Rock Pullets. They look JUST like my girls. I really like these birds, they are big and friendly.
