Only one I can help you with is the one in pic #5 and #8. That's a dark brahma hen. Hard to tell if she is a bantam brahma or a large fowl (standard) without something in the pic for reference on size; but she is most definitely a she and a dark brahma.

it looks like you have a couple of blue dutch perhaps as well if they are small. i recommend the color version of the American standard of breeds book.

I think he's a mix of the Dutch Blue, since he has a black head. Here is a Dutch Blue color, except for the red comb and wattles. She's a mix, but thought she was the queen!

The 1st picture looks like my Americana cross, 2-3 looks like my black austrolorpe's, then a blue lace something??, golden duckwing, another blue and another golden duckwing, i am good at colors usually not always breeds the blacks though really look exactly like my australorps. if you google the breeds i put up here you may get some picts that will help.

the "some" that have suggested that the hens may be silverlaced wyandottes actually raises PUREBRED silverlaced, so possibly "some" may know what they are talking about. Going by the photos it is hard to tell what color that the hens may be but the blue andalusion penciled is a good possibility.

I was trying to say that I disagreed with the SLW based on pictures I saw on-line. Multiple people suggested it, which I was acknowledging with the use of 'some'. I apologize for offending.

I can't help the tone of voice that is read into my text. 'Some' was not meant to be condescending. And if people can't disagree on a forum than why bother? I will look up the blue Andalusian penciled - but I was addressing the SLW guess. I still think that the hen looks like a dark brahma. Feathered legs and coloring matches. I do not breed anything so take it for what it's worth.

Thankyou, i appriciate it, i agree on the disagreeing! i am not good with "text-ese" i dont usually know what things like SLW means so i sometimes miss the entire meaning behind a comment and u r correct that everyone has a right to their opinion and i apologize for getting my "feathers ruffled"! LOL (that one i know!):eek:
