    What breed is that -black-gold- hen? She is young on the first picture, older in the second
    She is my most heavy hen, she might be heavier than the rooster, very heavy!

    Are those brown hens, RIRs??? Or what? Their neck feathers are missing because of pecking.
    Tip: they make huge brown eggs.

    I hope someone can give me a clue, what breed of chickens do i keep. The chicken farm only answears as "egg layers" and "meatbirds".
    But i am very curious, especially for the rooster and the black-gold hen, i want to incubate her eggs when i build my incubator, to get huge birds. But i would like to know what breeds they are.

    Thanks in advance!

    Columbian rock roo and the hens... The black and gold is a mix of some sort likely a sex link-very productive layers. And the red hens look like production reds.

    The roo looks like a cross to me. His shape is Mediterranean and his comb/wattles scream it, but then again he looks a bit too heavy to be pure. I don't think leghorns come in columbian.

    The black/gold hen is a mutt. It doesn't look like a BSL to me.

    The reds are either Production Reds or Golden Comets, I can't tell due to the fairly bad featherloss.

    Quote:I just made a small research and i found that Columbian Leghorns exist. Link So my rooster might be a Columbian Leghorn

    Also i think my brown hens are Production Reds, i can confirm after looking at pictures in google and compare that to my brown hen that has no missing feathers, i have no picture of her tho.

    But what about that black-golden hen? I havent found anything on her

    Your red hens are Red Sex-Links (aka Golden Comets, Cinnamon Queens, Red Stars, etc.). Your very handsome rooster looks very much like a Columbian Rock to me. He doesn't look Mediterranean to me. He does have red on the edge of his earlobes, his earlobes are not white. Sometimes red earlobes get whitish in the middle, I don't know why. Try googleing some pictures of Columbian Rocks and see what you think. I have a hen that's colored JUST like your black and gold hen. My hen is a Buff Orpington x Barred Rock. Whatever your hen is, she's a cross of some kind...
