    I received 5 hens from a local farmer That are between 16 and 20 weeks. He received them from a hatchery but did not know which breed was which. I have had them now since June. I believe they are all pullets. Please help me identify them. I have my guesses.

    The first is a RIR pullet.

    The second is all white with a beard.

    The third is either blue or lavendar. We call her bluebell.

    The fourth may be an Egyptian Fayoumi.

    This is another pic of bird #4. In the background is bird #5.

    Bird #5 is mostly white with dark black spots on her.

    Reba (our Rhode Island Red) is the friendliest I have seen. She has no problems when it comes to getting picked up.

    I have wondered about #5 being a roo. Odd thing is that the combs and wattles have grown slowly overtime. Within the last 10 days they turned this red color. I still think that she is a pullet though.

    Do we have any other guesses as to breeds???

    #2 is EE and looks just like our old bird Coconut, who was at one time the queen of all chickens. #3 is a blue andalusian, I think. We have one right now and yours is nearly her twin. Ours is Dulcinea.
