    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

    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.

    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.

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

    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.

    I agree with Wyandottes7's guesses.

    Beautiful flock! I would definitely get some more hens soon, though.
