    First pic--the buff hen in the back looks to have white earlobes? Maybe a buff mincora? White rock? hen, red rooster--not rhode island, maybe new hampshire? gold laced cochin--very pretty-- and brown leghorn. As stated, that black roo could be a jersey giant or australorp.

    In the first picture, the roo there might be a New Hampshire. The 2 hens in the foreground are a Gold Laced Cochin and a Light Brown Leghorn, and behind the roo the white one looks to be a White Rock, and the buff a Buff Minorca. The second picture is likely a Black Australorp rooster. If not BA, then Jersey Giant. Check the bottoms of his feet: pinkish white = BA, yellow = JG.

    Thank you, Been trying to look at pictures on line and only could figure the gold laced cochin. I think the black one is the Austalope it does have black feet.

    Wow! That golden laced cochin is gorgeous! Where did you get her? The white hen isn't a leghorn, too big. Probably a white rock. [​IMG]
