    I have 5 chickens, one rooster and 4 hens. I don't know the breed of any of them. (Sorry)
    My sister, got them for me as a surprise, She didn't ask the breeder what breed, any of them are. ><
    I have a clue to some of them. I was thinking that the rooster was a Welsummer, and that the brown hen was a rhode island red. not sure though.

    I have two hens that are the same breed. one of them is sitting on eggs, so I didn't want to take Her out just for a picture.

    Here are the pictures.


    This is the hen that i think is a rhode island red ^


    This Pictures is blurry, (sorry) ^


    Maybe a Australorp? I think she's a little too small. ^

    I know identify Chicken breeds can be hard, I know I'm bad at it. I spent hours online looking up breeds, to see if any look similar. I know it's kind of ridiculous for asking. but Thank you any way.

    Thanks for helping out~!

    #1 could be a Welsummer, or Rhode Island Red
    #2 looks just like my Rhode Island Red hens
    #3 looks like some kind of game hen to me
    #4 Not really sure
    I'm still very new to chickens, but I figured you could use a bump. I hope others can help identify better. Also it would be a lot easier if you could get a hold of the person your sister got them from.

    #1 I think is a Welsummer or possibly a young Barnvelder
    #2 Rhode Island Red
    #3 American game chicken for sure!
    #4 might be a younger Black Austrolorp

    Hope the chickens work out for you!
