    # 1 - - might be a partridge rock. Can you get a better picture of the lacing on the feathers? Also, a head shot would be good.

    #2 - - white earlobes - - - something in the mediterranean origin - - maybe Andalusian

    #4 - - - Delaware or light sussex.

    #5 - - need a better shot - - need to see feet and head.

    OK, these are my guesses. Good luck !

    Thanks! The chickens comment cracked me up! I know the pics aren't the best, the little buggers won't hold still when I pick up the camera. [​IMG]

    Quote:I modifying the #1 - - - from the pic, the bird does seem to have more of a cornish rock build.
    It could just be the result of the bird on the run - - - Another picture would help confirm breed this.

    On #3, I was thinking silver duckwing, too.
