I got a box of mixed breed chickens and are wondering what breeds theses are as they are ones I have not seen before. I do realize they could be mixes as well.
Thanks for your help

Houstin:


Stanley:


Lucky: and there is a reason he is called Lucky


Hennie, my only hen (I think)


Gerard and Mutley: Gerard is the white on left and Mutley is the black on right


I can edit the photos if needed and/or take more pictures,
Thanks,
Sherri

Well Hennie is for sure a hen, she looks to be a white rock. I would say the boys are a lovely batch of barnyard mixes. Lucky's chest resembles a Golden Spangled Hamburg, but his size does not. And Stanley I would say White Leghorn but he looks to have a rose comb. They are a gorgeous flock. I do hope you plan to get (or have) more hens and rehome some of your roos (or a nice bachelor pad). Will that many roos fighting and over-breeding will be a problem.

Houstin:

Hmmm...maybe an easter egger? Or a silver penciled hamburg? He's handsome! :D

Stanley:

I'm think rose combed white leghorn. Maybe a white Hamburg?

Lucky: and there is a reason he is called Lucky

I honestly don't know. My first thought was golden spangled hamburg with a single comb. I think someone else said that!

Hennie, my only hen (I think)

Is her earlobe white or red? If it is white, I'd say a white leghorn and red would make me think white rock. For sure a hen!

Gerard and Mutley: Gerard is the white on left and Mutley is the black on right

Gerard is maybe a white leghorn and Mutley might be a black sex link rooster. Do you have closer pictures of them?

I can edit the photos if needed and/or take more pictures,

Thank you for your help as it gives me something to look up so I can read more about the breed. Houstin is handsome and smart. That roo looks me in the eye when I talk to him.
As for the rooster/hen ratio, I am getting more hens very shortly. The saving grace with this flock is that they all get along. There's 2 trios that hang out together and comes night, they are all in a bunch.

Here is a closeup of Hennie showing her earlobe. Her eggs are a nice beige color.


Gerard close up


Mutley close up. He's got an interesting head dress going on.


Thanks again for the help.

I'll stick with my original guesses on the others. As for Mutley I think he is most likely an EE cross. I would guess EE/Polish or EE/Silkie.

Houstin:
Easter Egger or Chantecler mix.

Stanley:
Not sure. Might be a Hamburg or Wyandotte or Easter Egger mix.

Lucky: and there is a reason he is called Lucky
Coloring makes me think a Marans or Golden Laced variety mix.

Hennie, my only hen (I think)
White Plymouth Rock.

Gerard and Mutley: Gerard is the white on left and Mutley is the black on right
Mutley is an Easter Egger or Polish mix.
