Thoughts, educated guesses and answers appreciated!
I'm pretty sure its a he? lol
Wyandotte or a mix and yes it's a roo
Wyandotte mix and definitely a roo!
Looks like a Silver Laced Wyandotte mix to me.
Thanks guys...I was given a mix of some heritage breeds..just trying to ID them all now...the hens should be laying soon so egg colour will be helpful to know!
I will post pictures of the others as well
Looks like a Silver Laced Wyandotte mix rooster to me, too. If you post photos of your other birds, we'll be happy to help you find out their breeds too!
Here is an older picture they are around 11 weeks here....
I will put more recent ones up as soon as I can but this one is the only one I have on this computer.
I now believe the peachy coloured one to be an EE...she has the greeny-blue legs.
I think the black ones might be marans mixes...one might be a black copper marans she is getting a copper blonde colouring on her neck and head and she has two feathers on one foot and the other might just be a black marans.
They both have pea combs and two toned orange eyes...black feet and legs, pale sole. Oh and beautiful blue and green iridescent feathers!
The two black birds may be Black Copper Marans or Marans mixes. Not all Black Copper Marans seem to get the copper coloration, so that one all black bird could still be one. Its also possible that the all black one is an Australorp mix. As for the buff bird, she could be an Easter Egger. However, not all Easter Eggers have blue legs, and not all birds with blue legs are Easter Eggers. She could be a pretty barnyard mix that won't lay green/blue eggs- but you won't know until she starts laying!
Updated photos might help, but these are my guesses for now.
I agree with Wyandottes7's thoughts. Your two black birds are probably both Black Copper Marans, or at least a mixed breed that contains Black Copper Marans. Regardless of their exact mix, they should still lay nice dark eggs.
Your buff bird could be a non-bearded or muffed Easter Egger, or it may not. A photo of its comb may help--if it has a single comb, then it is probably not an EE. If it has a pea comb, then it is almost certainly an EE. Of course, you won't really know for sure until she starts producing eggs.
And in case you were wondering, all of them (except your confirmed rooster) are definitely pullets.
Here are some from today...
