    Hello Everyone!!!
    Last Spring I hatched a whole bunch of eggs I bought online. I didn't do a good job of keeping track of who was who when they hatched(this year I'm using those latex leg bands so this doesn't happen again). I have 3 roosters and a hen that I really need some opinions on as to what breed they are. At least I know what was in the bator at the time....so, here are your choices:
    B/B/S Marans
    B/B/S Orpingtons
    B/B/S Jersey Giants (with this one there's a chance of a hybrid, because there was also a Blue Cochin hen in the same pen).
    The only one with feathering on the legs is the lighter colored Splash roo. I have an idea of what breeds they are....but would really love some input before I go ordering some hens for them. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!!! Thanks!!!

    1.B/B/S Orpington
    2.B/B/S Maran
    3. B/B/S Jersey Giant
    4.I am going to guess either Maran or Jersey Giant but she has the comb of a orp
    I hope someone else can tell you for a fact

    Hello cterbizan!!!
    Thanks for taking time to respond!!! I appreciate your suggestions!! I'm fairly new to raising chickens......only been doing this about a year. I thought I'd be able to tell the breeds apart as they matured....yea,right(LOL). And, of course, I'd have to have 3 different breeds in B/B/S all in the incubator at once. I'm still too new at chickens to be easily able to identify by type alone.

    Hi There, AmyJ!!!!
    What a nice surprise seeing you here on this thread!!! I haven't been online too much lately........between computer probs on and off and just being really busy, free time just doesn't exist(smile). Thank you for your compliments about my birds!!! I was hoping to sort this issue out so I know which hens to get. Speak to you soon!!!
    Kathy
