    Even though this bird has spurs it's a chicken? I'm pretty sure i saw it lay an egg

    our rooster who i'm guessing is very young because I don't hear him crowing and he is rather small.

    thats all the ones i can make guesses on cause i deffentlly dont know any of the other ones. your rooster looks like he could at least be a year old being fully feathered like he is. he's probley a bantam instead of a standered

    first one looks like a deleware
    second looks like a production red (aka hatchery RIR)
    third, maybe cuckoo marans?
    #4 is a brown leghorn
    dunno on #5
    #6 looks like another production red (maybe new hampshire), and yes, hens can have spurs...not only certain breeds are more prone to spurs, but even older hens of any breed may grow them.

    #7 looks like a cochin x faverolle roo. He may just be young, or caponed...does he mount the hens?

    1. Light Sussex -- Dellies have yellow legs
    2. I'd say Production Red except for the comb...
    3. Barred Rock
    4. Light Brown Leghorn
    5. All I'm sure of is her color is Silver Duckwing.... Probably an EE though
    6. EE
    7. Production Red -- yes, hens will get spurs.
    8. Mix roo... feathered feet, crest, rose comb... He's pretty!
