    We have several chickens that we purchased from someone on craigslist. They are wonderful and we adore them. We had gotten them for eggs but have totally fallen in love with all the chickens. Now we want to everything about chickens and the what's and how's of doing things.

    One of the first things we'd like to find out is what type of chickens we have. I feel kind of stupid for not asking - not sure if they even knew but better late than never. The only one we know what breed it is for sure is the Turken hen.

    This is the picture of Coaltrain, I believe he is a Australorp.

    This is a picture of Blackjack. We are not sure what breed he is.

    Here are the pictures of the hens we have.

    And for fun our Turken - named Turkey Lurkey

    If anyone can help us identify what breeds we have - we would truly appreicate it!!!

    Thanks so much and I really hope I posted the images correctly!

    I am going to take a guess here but I think:

    1. Is an Australop
    2. I am not sure
    3. Wydnotte(spelling?)
    4. Rhode Island Red
    5. Leghorn
    6. Red Sex Link
    7. The last one looks like a Turken but I guess you already knew that [​IMG]

    Thank you for letting me know!!

    Hopefully someday, I'll be able to identify as quickly as you![​IMG] Just need a bit of time - I'm so new into this.

    I still can't believe how much we are all (my entire family - 1 hubby, 2 sons (15 and 8) and 1 daughter (4)) are enjoying this. The chickens are becoming so spoiled. They are such a joy to watch and be with.

    I can't wait to learn all I can about them!

    Thanks!

    5 white leghorn hen (if it his white earlobes)

    its not a white leghorn, it is too big and combs should flop over to the side. white leghorns have really big combs that flop over one eye they are also quite small.​
