    Hi everyone, I'm a newby to everything chicken and learning lots all the time, however I am not sure which breeds I have. I know the bottom picture is my handsome and very noisy cockerel! he is under a year old and quite tame, he has black/grey legs with a few feathers on them. The first picture is of some of my ladies I would like to know the breed of the back one, I think she is a bantam, she is small and lays beatifull white eggs. The other five ladies are like the front two but the other three are alot darker red. Your help will be very much appreciated as people keep asking me what breeds I have!!

    I see one Salmon Faverolle, a couple Wheaten Marans and 1 Red Sex Link. Not sure of the roo. Can get up cl0ose and single pic of each hen? That would make it easier.

    Hi thanks for all your replies and lovely comments!! I am very proud of my Roo (Rocky). As previously said I am very new to keeping chickens and a friend saw this front shot picture of Rocky and wondered if he was some sort of Silkie Cross? Any thoughts?

    They are so healthy and fat. What are you feeding them and how old are they?
