    My husband and son brought home 3 chicks about a month ago because my son was so sad when a racoon got one of his roosters and one of our new cochin. They can not remember what the one breeed is, the other 2 I believe are Polish and a d'uccle??? excuse my spelling.
    Please help if you can and if you can tell me they are all hens would be great also! Thank you in advance! I also posted a couple pics of our Roo and a couple of our hens if you know there breeds would appreciate it. Thanks for your time.

    Your d'uccle is a roo, as is your polish, I believe. The third is a silver sebright. [​IMG]

    D'Uccle looks rooish to me. Not sure about the Polish (I've never had a polish before), and third pic is a Sebright. Beautiful chickens!

    And here are the other pics, thanks again, thought I would ask the experts!

    our Rooster Romeo, we got him from a friend, hatched him last year with 9 others, him and two hens I believe are Ameracauna's, but not sure since we got the eggs from friends that were not sure of breed. Him and two hens are the last ones standing besides the new hens we have 9 juvies and 3 one 1/2 month olds. The other 6 were killed by a predator last year [​IMG] Thanks again!

    Our Rooster Romeo, he may be a mixed breed? but I think he is pretty

    one of the hens that was hatched last year with him Juliet...I think she is ameracauna??

    Thanks for the help, probably should not have put them in their yard with treats to take pics, should have done it earlier when they were free ranging! Oh well....
    we also have some plymouth rock and rhode island reds, hope all these breeds like eachother! [​IMG]

    Juliet is a VERY beautiful Easter Egger. I don't know what the roo is, but I'm thinking a mix of some sort. Definitely not Ameraucana, but maybe a Welsummer cross or partridge Rock cross.... [​IMG]
