    Hi all! We inherited a couple of chickens from my MIL when we bought our house this past May. We have 2 roosters, but one thinks he's a dog and hangs out with the dogs instead, and 2 hens. We have decided to hatch a few eggs and was successful with getting some fertilized from our chickens. We where starting to wonder what kind these would be but then we realized we have no idea what kind our rooster or one hen is. Can you help? In the picture is the rooster who is black and yellow and then the brown one we aren't sure exactly what she is. Thanks for any help! [​IMG][/IMG]

    The first picture looks like a Silver laced Wyanndotte mix, the white hen looks like a Leghorn (does it have white earlobes?), and the red and white hen maybe a Red sex link.
