    1- cross hen
    2- hard to tell, first impression was a blue wheaton amauracana, but yellow legs?! looks like RC so maybe wyandotte amauracana cross which would make it an EE
    3- BSL
    4- yes the little ones look to be the cross you said

    The first hen has golden laced something and Silkie, perhaps?
    Cockerel, i agree with the last poster that it is an EE, and how beautiful is he!?!?!?

    Thank you for the replies! I think I will breed the gold lace hen with my white silkie roo, see what I get. I am not shure if I will mate the brahma/barred rocks with the EE roo or try to turn them back to buff with my buff brahma roo... but I will mate the BSL with the EE roo.... can't wait to see what I get out of these combo's! lol [​IMG]

    I can't help with breeds but I love the first chicken....the Golden laced/silkie oh my! My mind is going wild with possibilities on what you could get. [​IMG]

    I am going to take what I hope is an educated guess on the first one...a golden laced wyandotte X black silkie. What do the rest of you think????
