    I purchased my first flock as chicks from the Rural King. I am guessing that the tan or yellow bird is a Buff Orpinton but I'm not sure about the others. There are so many breeds and so many pictures I'm confused. I think the big cockerel is a RIR. The bantam cockerel on the gate though I have no idea. I know that you people will not allow me to be ignorant long.

    [​IMG] Black Orpinton?

    [​IMG] Black with white speckles?

    [​IMG]RIR Cockerel?

    Shot in the dark, but my guesses are you're right on the first two and #4.

    #3 - Barred Plymouth Rock

    #5 - Old English Game Bantam

    The first one could be a Buff orpington, or a buff Rock

    Second one looks like a Black austraorp, but could be just about anything

    Third one is a Barred rock

    fourth looks like a RIR Roo

    fifth looks like a Black Breasted Old English Game Bantam

    Your Banty boy looks just like ours- we were told he was an English Game Cock. (ours is named Winston Churchill because he thinks he is...)

    The all black could be a Leghorn.
    The first one could be a Buff Rock.
    The striped one is a Barred Plymouth Rock.
    The first roo could be a Brown Leghorn.
    And the second roo could be a Black Breasted Red Old English Game Bantam.
    They're all very pretty and healthy looking.

    All the birds pictured are less than a year old. I'll attempt to get better pictures unless they are too young to know for sure?[​IMG]
