    I got given 4 hens for free today, the lady said they are 2-3 years old and have stopped laying (it's middle of autumn here btw) but had no idea what breed they are. Pics below.

    This one I do know He's my Araucana rooster, Smokey (named by miss 3) He's separated currently because the big black hen had a real go at him.

    These are the 4 new ones, the white girl is much smaller than the others, the lady said the big black hen laid blue & green eggs when she was laying.

    Big black girl on the left has a greenish tinge to her feathers, the light brown one in the middle is rumpless, feathers on the girl on the right are patterned? I think.

    great photos! But it is hard to tell what kind of chickens those are from the photos.

    The brown with splotches is an Easter Egger.

    The black ones could be Australorps.

    I can't see the white one well enough to see what kind of comb she has.

    [​IMG]Snow's Bum (again) at the left edge, Lace sitting on the left, Shadow behind her and Pitch in the middle of the pic

    I't doesn't show very well in these pics but Pitch is a lot bigger than any of the others and snow is much smaller, about half the size of Smokey Shadow & Lace and about a third of the size of Pitch
