    Hi all, these are our 9 hens and 2 roosters!
    We're pretty sure it's 9:2. There's one my uncle seems to think is a rooster instead of a hen :p
    Anyway, I want to know the breed/s if anyone can tell me. I know they pictures aren't too great, but they don't like humans :p

    [​IMG] Our brooding hen!

    [​IMG]The one up the back is the one we're unsure of

    [​IMG] This one is our smaller rooster and another hen
    [​IMG] A better picture of the hen my uncle isn't sure about. She's a hen, right?

    Sorry the pictures are so bad, I took them on my phone and these hens don't like people.
    We used to have a really beautiful black hen with green through her feathers, but she died two weeks ago. I don't think any of the babies came from her, but just in case that helps.
    Also, if it helps, I'm in Australia.

    I am inclined to think the little fuzzy one is a rooster.

    It looks like a silkied rooster, just seen my friends silkied cochin rooster, and they look very much alike.

    Ah, three roosters, great! Lol. The other two annoy the hens, but seem okay with each other most of the time.
    Thank you both of you!
