    I have three more just like her and one that is about the color of a RIR

    This is one from our eggs. What do you think she is.

    Hi! The top bird definitely looks like a buff orpington, but I don't know what the last bird is. But they're both very cute! [​IMG]

    Buff Orpington and a mixed barnyard fowl. Maybe the mixed fowl birds tail got shredded oddly, but the thick body type and tail look masculine.

    Buff Orps and a mixed breed cockerel. You could probably narrow down the mix by posting the possible parent breeds by sex.

    Bottom picture is a Blue Laced Red Wyndotte and a Silver Lace mix. Not sure which is hen and which is rooster though. She does have a rose comb. I'm really leaning towards hen as she has no spur bubs on her legs. But would not be upset if it where a rooster.

    I'm not see the Orpington in the top picture though. There just is not the heavy body and not enough feather yet. They are 3.5 months.

    The buffs are hatchery quality, that's why they don't have the size you're looking for. Plus, they're just babies still.
    The last pic is a cockerel, and not a Wyandotte. Straight comb, partially feathered legs, wrong body shape, and he's not laced. He's a mixed breed. The blur on the right may be a slw, but we can't tell from the pic.

    I only have Cochins and Wyandottes in that stall Chipmunk hatched from so she has to be Cochin wyandotte cross, or pure Cochin but she doesn't have the feathered legs for pure and I do not have any red Cochin. Only black , blue and Partridge.

    RhodeRunner I believe she is getting a Cochin tail puff. She has Cochin in her.

    The Cochin mix is male. The Orpingtons are pretty typical of hatchery stock.
