    We have been wondering what breed chickens were these ? The two on the left we havent figured out and we assume the two on the right are barred rocks?

    Forgive me...I don't know my left from my right. [​IMG]

    I'd say Barred Rocks. :)

    If the hen lays light brown eggs, pretty sure barred rocks.

    If the Hen lays Dark brown eggs she may be cuckoo marans. But marans usually have feathers on their legs.

    Dominiques lay the same color eggs as Barred Rocks but have a different kind of comb than the birds in your picture.

    Can't see the two on the left very well, face shots will help a bunch :)

    The two on the right are probably Barred Rocks, based on comb and leg color.

    Hi

    I assume you are aware that you have a pair of barred Plymouth Rocks ie a male and a female. The barring on the female looks more cuckoo but her legs are yellow so that rules out a cuckoo Marans so must be either Barred Rock or Dominique. Can't see her comb but I'm assuming that it's a single like his and that they are a pair. If she has a rose comb then she's a Dominique, but he is definitely a barred Rock

    I would hazard a guess at the other two being a Blacktail which is a Rhode Island Red x Light Sussex hybrid and possibly a Speckledy, or a cream Legbar or maybe even a Silver Campine, but individual close up photos would help as you can't really see much detail from that distance,

    Nice looking little flock.

    Thanks for all the help and Ok well when i get home later i can get better individual shots of the smaller two. I was told the bigger red color one was a RIR. But when i resesrched it didnt look full breed. And the smallest one almost seems like a bantam because all of them were suppose to be similar in age. We also got these from an individual not a hatchery so not garuntees .. We also have 6 others about 4 months old.. Two white leghorns, 1 rooster and 1 hen, 4 EE'S that i have no idea what they could be but two of those are little more furry around their head
