    Okay, I own two chooks, One Cock and a Pullet.

    First, Pepper, Shes 15 weeks and i am believed she is a girl but i just want to make sure shes a she and what breed is she? I thinks shes a New Hamp. But i cant be sure.

    Secondly, Bumble.He is a Cock, (He crows, has Sickles and is quite scary sometimes![​IMG]) but i want to know what breed he might be. I have been looking through and think hes a Barnevelder. Once again, Cant be sure.

    The first one look like a production red to me. New Hampshires typically have more black in the tail.

    As for the roo, I would need to see his face. Does he have a beard and ear muffs? My first thought was Easter Egger, but he has a single comb so he may be something else. Barnvelders are not all that common. My guess would probably be mix, but a standing full body shot would help determine that.

    What colour are the boy's earlobes? What I can see of his body looks more like that of a leghorn than of a barnevelder.
