    The 2 hen in the back black with white lace I think are Marans. The hen in the for ground is black with gold lace can anyone help with that 1? Maybe a golden lace Wyandottie? I just dont know. The person I got her from told me she was a Welsummer [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Sorry I can't help with the ID, but it's not a Gold laced Wyandotte. Here's a pic of mine. See Molly. Good luck

    Wyandotte Ok
    From the pictures I am going to guess Barred Rocks.

    Is it just red near the neck or all over? Can you get a close up pic of her? Would be alot easier to identify it that way.

    From that pic, I don't see any laceing. I think you're going to have to get some closer pics. Also, the color on the others is called Barring, and to determine whether or not they are marans or Barred Rocks you can go by leg color. I can't really see what color they are in the pic, but marans have white legs, and BR's have yellow legs with black shading on the front.

    I can't see the dark one good enough to be sure, but if it has gold lacing, could it be a barnevelder? Is this the kind of lacing you are talking about?


    Barnevelder's have straight/single combs.

    If it has yellow legs and a single comb, it is most likely a Partridge Rock.
