    My background story about my chickens. My kids did chickens for 4-H, broilers, and they got butchered back in August. Well, the kids missed having chickens so we got a few off of a guy advertising on Craigslist. He didn't know what he had but did give me two that had been laying regularly and 4 pullets. The kids also picked out 4 bantams because they were cute. Here are some pictures of my chickens. Can anyone help me in identifying them? Thanks to everyone! I do know that I have 2 splash, 1 black, and a blue cochin bantam. It's the rest I'm not sure about.

    Here is a better pic of #4. I am going to try and go out to the coop and get some better pics later. These were from last night when I was letting them range around the yard and as you know it is hard to get good pics cause they won't hold still.

    I don't know breeds very well but I love the color of the hen in the first pic. With those fluffy feathers she does look like she has orpington in her.

    1st pic Partridge rock/orpington looks to have wt. shanks maybe from bleaching out due to egg laying though.

    2&4 sex link pullets

    3 RIRed or production red type, maybe a BA on back?

    5 Wt. Silky & a Blue/splash?

    Thanks to everyone for your input. Yes the first one looks like she might have some orpington in her. My kids love to hold her, she is soooo soft! I never thought of partridge rock. I guess I am just still new to this.

    1st one looks very much like a partridge rock. I have 3 and they're wonderful birds. Good looking group though. [​IMG]
