    We acquired 11 hens this summer from friends who were moving and I would love for someone to tell me what breeds a few of these are.

    The ones I know iare:
    2 Rhode Island Reds
    1 white crested black polish
    3 white silkies


    The following are ones that I am unsure of:

    The previous owners had a rooster at one time and the following hen is a result of the rooster and the hen below her

    Basically, a mixed breed flock. You can see there was a Polish there somewhere, with the birds with clean legs and crests. Can't really tell what they're mixed with at this point. The bottom bird looks to be an Ancona hen.
