    Top one looks like a SLW or cross breed BR and the 2nd looks like a light sussex (or Coronation maybe???) and the bottom looks like a RIR

    The first one is a cross breed. (silver laced wyandottes don't have barring in the tail and neck)
    Second one is a Columbian Rock (sussex have white legs)
    Third one is also a cross bred (wrong comb for a Rhode Island Red)

    I figure that most all my chickens are going to be cross breeds, but I would like to know at least a bit about them. That might give me something to go on as to friendlyness from the roosters that I have. What could the cross breed be?

    Quote:Well the first bird could be a Silver Laced Wyandotte / Barred Rock Cross or a Silver Laced Wyandotte / Dominque Cross
    The third one could be a Production Red of some type or a Buckeye cross.

    When it comes to crosses it is hard to say what is in some of them, they could have 3 or 4 breeds in them.

    Thank you so much for helping me Chris I am just getting started with chickens so I still have a lot to learn with the breeds. I get most of my eggs from our local auction. I am more looking for eggs from these breed. I have some WLRC,(that is what I was told) for my meat birds.
