    This is a bantam rooster, but I'm not sure of his breed. The yellow earlobes are throwing me off.

    Thanks mo! That's what I thought, but the lobe color was confusing me. Hang with me...I've got some hens I need identified.

    Here's some others that I'm clueless about. They're a beige-ish color. Any ideas?

    Is this one a hen or a roo?

    I don't know what they are but I'm wondering if "extremely cute" could be a breed. Cuz thats what I think they are!!

    The single comb white bird looks to be white leghorn female. The rose combs seem to be crossed with the white leghorn and possibly a buff brahma, due to being feather legged.

    The white leghorns, these beige chickens, and one "mystery" hen (my sister will be inspecting her tomorrow) are the only breeds of chickens in this flock. My sis is going to try and get a pic of the "mystery" hen tomorrow, and I'll post that pic as well.

    I am inclined to agree with the Sebright part, but the other could be something with feathered legs, Cochin or brahma, maybe.

    The lady who owns these chickens (who knows nada about chickens whatsoever) describes the mystery hen as a dominicker with feathered legs. [​IMG] So I do expect my sis to possibly find a dark brahma hen, but we'll have to wait and see. There's definitely not any sebrights at their farm now, but this is waaaaaayyyyyy out in the boonies, so who knows what could've carried off a few banties. [​IMG]
