    First is my big 'ol chicken, idk if he is a he or she, but he is a big fluffy cutie! 2nd pic is his butt, lol.

    4th are my 'Dutch Bantam' pair. They are very tiny and are always together, what breed?
    Last two just the Roo. The window frame on the ground has 10in squares and the Roo fits and is smaller.

    The first one definitely looks like a roo to me....RIR? His 'spurs' are starting to grow too. I'm not knowledgeable enough to guess breeds though. Good luck.

    All the big ones were supposed to be Wels. Only one looks like it, another is bantam sized and has spots, so...yea.
    There are two real red hen and roo[?], this guy is light brown.
    Where do you see spurs? The little dots? My younger bantams have bigger 'spurs' than him, lol.

    Welsummers have a single comb. The 2nd hen, the one that has coloring sort of like a Welsummer has a pea comb. Maybe a mix? All very pretty - whatever they are!

    Quote:2nd is totally idk, lol.
    3rd is the Wels, Wels mix.
    They all have a single comb, hard to see, but its there, the little chicken mohawk.
    My fav roo that died had a pea comb, the sizzle/frizzle has the walnut/peacomb thing. Everyone else, mohawk. [​IMG]

    the 6th pic lookslike a wellsummer but could be a mix. The 1rst pic looks like a buff of some sort, a buff in this case is a kind of chicken that has a coloring of buff baige. The chickens on the left in the 5th pic look like some kind of silkie i'm going to do some research. the one in the middle of the 5th pic is a blue silkie the one on the left is probbaly som kind of mix.

    The first one looks like a hen to me! And looks like shes about ready to lay judging by that nice red comb! Just looked again at the first one... are the wings wet? If not might be roos feathers coming in. [​IMG] not sure bout the rest though! Not very good with breeds! [​IMG] third is definetly a welsummer though!
