    Hmmm, it's kinda hard to tell from those pictures. Are they large fowl or bantams?

    the rooster might be a welsummer or a partridge rock and the hen on the left looks like a brown leghorn. the hen on the far right is probably an easter egger or mixed breed. individual and closer up pics would certainly help us to tell for sure :)

    OK thx i will get some better pics and post tomorrow. The rooster prob ways about 6-7 lbs the hens are about 5-6 not sure what weight class that puts him in these chickens where give to me buy a friend that had to move ! And i am very new to chicken farming LOL.

    I went and bought some RIR from the feed store 12 chick's But i want to keep the same breed together and not get mixed up blood line going . My goal is to be raising some rare breeds . But figured i would start with some cheaper birds first to learn the ropes . The lady i got the roo from said she thinks he is a Black and Copper Maran. But i don't know enough to make that call ..She also said the yellow legged hen might be a Welsummer . If so are these 2 breeds worth investing in getting mates for them . I'm looking to start selling at the auctions.I live in Central florida . Any and all advice is helpfull.
