    These are some of my birds. I don't know what kind they are. The large bird is one of my laying hens, again don't know what kind she is.

    Quote:I do have 4 hens that looks just like her, and they are very very docile, they let you pet them and they won't peck at you. Not sure that helps much.

    Any chance the black ones could be a cuckoo maran? I was just told about a cuckoo maran and looked it up. I found this photo on one site that says it is a cuckoo maran:

    Looks a lot like my bird.

    no, your black one is definitely a Barred Rock. Got one just like it!! With your's being on the dark side with that neat little Dot on her head, i would say it's a pullet!

    I concur with the guesses on the first 3. The hen is gorgeous though! I'll be watching to find out what she is. Where did you get her? That info might help a little. [​IMG]

    Leg color on the first is wrong for a barred rock. I would tend to lean more towards the maran.
