"Rescue" bantams

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
So











I'm obsessed with chickens..... I drive 1.5 hour to go get some yesterday (it takes that long to get anywhere lol). There are 4 pairs, 1 trio, and 3 single roosters. I show up and they are all in probably a 1.5 foot by 2 foot boxes. It's basically plywood with and doors hinged on. 3 tall by 5 or so across. They were in over an inch thick of chicken poo. One rooster lost all his toes to frost bite last year and their water was so grossūüėě! I didn't realize it would be a rescue type situation... I wasn't planning to really take all of them....

The lady told me, don't let them in together, they'll kill each other. I trusted my gut and put them accordingly into the horse stalls. Everyone was fine! I've never seen such happy chickens!! They LOVED the dirt and fresh water!

I went down last night to check on them.... There were chickens EVERYWHERE!!!! I had forgotten about the whole flying thing...... So I had to catch them all and clip their wings in the dark. It was an entertaining day! I might not be able to "save every life ", but every life matters and deserves to be saved when given the opportunity.

Any help on their breeds would be appreciated:) I didn't listen to the lady when she told me, I was kind of in shock...

I only took pictures of the roosters, one hen, and two pair. They aren't very friendly, not mean, just scared.

What's your ideas on breed and colours? I know the barred rocks and Cochin, but what color is the "blue " one?

Beautiful birds there. Disappointing some people don't know how to properly care for birds. I've seen a few of these "sellers" myself.

Picture one looks like a Gold Birchen male and a BBR female OEGB pair.

Picture two... maybe Jap Banty crosses?

Picture three, looks like a Sebright cross in back. Looking at the "Jap cross" male on the left, he's got a very hefty body - maybe some Bantam Cornish mixed in there?

Picture four and five, Blue Cochin Bantam hen.

Picture six and seven, some kind of crossbreed roo.

Picture eight, looks like a pair of Barred OEGBs.

Picture nine-ten-eleven, looks like another crossbreed too.

Picture twelve I believe is a Red Pyle OEGB.

200 something birds. 8 species. ‚ô• Norman ‚ô• Norma ‚ô• Misha ‚ô• and ‚ô• Taylor ‚ô• are my babies.

I set fire to the rain! Watch it pour as I, touched your face. Well it burn while I cried, because I heard it screaming out your name. And I threw us into flames. I knew that was the last time, the last time...I set fire to the rain! -Adele

so glad you rescued them -  the mottled ones look like serama crosses to me.
