    My sister got these from other people and would like to know what they are. All of us are still learning, so we just have no idea.

    She lays extra large, dark brown eggs.

    the rooster---his comb and color say splash laced Wyandotte, but a Wyandottes should have yellow legs and a different body shape. He's sure pretty [​IMG]

    The rooster appears to be a splash laced red Wyandotte. His legs do look yellow to me. His type is not ideal for the breed but he looks like most of the other hatchery quality splash laced red wyandotte roosters out there.

    He definitely has very pretty yellow legs. There are shadows all over so it makes them look a bit off. They would just not cooperate and hold still for the camera, and he kept turning around and stretching himself out. I finally gave up and chose the best pics. I di have one that is very clear and the colors really stand out, but took off just as I took the picture, so it is just of her straight on, and his big rear end and legs. Lol Thank you for your help!! :-D

    Okay, if yellow legs than hatchery splash laced Wyandotte.

    Either he or that Polish rooster would make cute little mixed breed chicks with your hens. Not that I have hatching on the brain, or anything [​IMG]

    What kind of chickens are these? We have 2 of them they don't like to be picked up as much as our other chicks but they do come up to us so they aren't skittish. They are a pretty cream/tan color.

    Hmm... there's an idea! These are actually my sister's chickens, but both the roosters share the gals, so I bet there would be both if the eggs were hatched. I bet her family would have loved to hatch some chicks. They just got 6 chicks for Easter, but I am going to suggest it to her! :-D
