could you get a better picture? from the little i can see it appears to be a Crele. Perhaps.. Old english standard?. which can be expensive if their from good lines.. as any chicken... but other then that. just a 5 dollar bird

It looks like there are two to the right one looking ahead and one looking down, they both look like speckled sussex.
If thats what they are, it depends on the lines I guess.
I have some that I hatched myself that are gorgeous but the eggs were only like a dollar a piece, if that.
They are a lovely bird, looks wise and temperment.
Its sad that he is not treating them well.

The two to the right do look like Speckled Sussex. The rooster is crele colored, I don't know the breed. And I don't recognize the hen in the back.

If he breeds them, none of the offspring will be purebred. Nothing wrong with that, I love my mutts, but he shouldn't expect to get big bucks for them.

Also the hen in the back appears to have a pretty bad scaley leg mite infestation. Smear vaseline on them to kill them mites or she'll be crippled and will eventually lose her toes.
