    and thats Amy

    the hens are a bit smaller than sussex hens, there were black, buff and white with black feathers around their neck, and the big buff rooster had an enormous comb and wattles. they have green eyes, the hens had no wattles, and they are quiet and friendly

    heres another pic of the other chickens they had, im not sure if the black is an australorp as it has green eyes and the feathers don't have that green tinge, but i dont really know that much about them

    The buff ones are orps, while the white ones look like Delaware to me. I guess I dont know about the black one for sure; it might be a mix or something. She almost looked kinda like a dark Cornish in the face.... can we see natural poses of the birds?

    Man that black one has me stumped!!!!! But I am still thinking buff orpington for the other one. I am so sorry I cant help you with little Amy. They are beautiful birds though! I will research up on cute little Amy to try and find her breed!!!

    i managed to get a hold of the lady i bought them off, and she is claiming they are all sussex. i thought the white ones were sussex hens at first, but i figured they were too small and slim, and they dont have any wattles and just a tiny pale pink comb, and iv never seen a black sussex that looks like Amy. perhaps they are mixed breed

    Oh, that could be true now that you think if it, I mean Buffy being a Sussex. I have never heard of a black Sussex. Yes, they probably are mixed somehow!
