What Mystery Breeds did I get? :)

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

Okay back in April we got 14 new birds, unfortunately we lost a few of them to Hawks. And while I knew what most of them were, I don't know what these remaining four are! I have a 5th, that's a Pioneer, I think, but I can't get a good shot of her, she's hanging out in a nest box today and says that Snow is too evil for her tastes.

 

Anyways, I'm curious as to what we ended up with! ^.^ I've tried to get the best photos possible.

 

 

 

 

This is our Rooster, he's got a pretty fancy looking comb, soft downy feathers underneath (the white at the base of the tail)

 

This is one of the hens, her name is molly and yesh, she's a little muddy XD and very petite

 

Another photo of Molly

This is She Who Roosts in Trees - when they were free ranging it, before the hawks, we'd find her in the branches of a pine tree about six feet up. She is also very petite. 

 

 

Another view of She Who Roosts in Trees

 

and finally:

This is Ms Fancy Pants. She loves to brood, has feathered feet (like, REALLY, feathered) and is petite but fluffy as all get out!

The last one doesn't have much of a comb at all! It's barely there, thin, and looks single.

I thought the rose comb bantams were blue, black or white, though? not his funky red!

I zoomed in on the partridge bird and am going with brahma. And the top roo is a buff something rose comb.
