    [​IMG]My friend gave me these chickens. She can't remember what breeds they are but she ordered them into our local farm store, so I assume they are real breeds. If you could help me identify them, I would really appreciate it. I am new to chickens and am trying to learn all I can. I have 7 other chickens and I know what kind they are! Thank you.

    I'm thinking #1 is a silver-penciled wyandotte. #2 looks like a leghorn to me. Are her earlobes white or red? #3 would be either a buff rock or a buff orpington. I don't know how to tell the difference between the two, but I've had orpingtons and she looks like what I had.

    The middle chicken is cream with buff feathers on the neck. Sorry the picture doesn't show the color as good as it could. I think it is a rooster. I have very limited experience, but these are very young and it has way more comb than any other chicken I have. Any chance the bottom two are golden sex link?
