I was chicken- watching for my neighbors when they went on vacation recently. They have a really pretty flock. They told me I could do whatever I wanted with the eggs I collected. Of course I wanna hatch them 😁😂
But I would like to narrow down what breeds they are first. I know there’s a Silkie, Amerucauna and a Polish hen but would like to narrow down some others and the rooster as well. Oh and there’s some RIRs in the mix as well.

The rooster is mixed. He has feathers on his legs, a crest and pink legs.

There’s a Rhode Island Red, Red Sex Link and an Appenzeller Spitzhauben.

The 2 barred hens look like cuckoo Marans, as they have pink legs and less pronounced barring.

Possibly two brown Leghorns.

One Ameraucana or easter egger, though it looks a bit round for an Ameraucana.

If the small white one in pic 3 is a Silkie then it’s either mixed or smooth feathered.

The white one in pic 4 is mixed. Wrong leg colour for a Leghorn.

There’s one at the back of pic 2 I can’t quite make out but it looks mixed.

That’s just assumptions from what I can make out of the pictures :)

My thoughts exactly. Check bottoms of the possible Ameraucana, pretty likely pure if they are white or pink. Pure black Easter Eggers seem to be on the uncommon side
