    [​IMG] This is Sunny, we are thinking that this might be a Roo but not 100% sure, Maybe a silkie Mix






    [​IMG] This is Pebbles, we are pretty sure this is a hen. That is more of a seabright mix





    [​IMG] This is Mocha, we are pretty sure that she is a hen, that is also a silkie mix

    Your first looks like it's got some Polish in it; maybe buff polish??? I'm not really seeing roo feathers in the photos; it looks more like pullet to me. More photos (of the side and tail) might help.

    I'd say the second is a Dutch or an OEGB (I still don't recall the what the difference is between those two! [​IMG] ) Maybe a silver- something color is what she is. : D


    Your third also looks like it's got some Polish in it. It looks like a Gold-laced Polish mix. And, yup, I'd say pullet. : )

    Hope that helps you a bit! : )

    is their anyway that you have a polish and that is what the first and last are mixed with. the reason i dont think they are crossed with silkies is because i dont see feathers or even little stubbles. Are they clean legged? feathered feet is a dominate trait. So far everyone look like pullet, the second is for sure.

    The reason I say Silkie mix is because they both have 1 extra toe but only on one legs. They are both clean legged

    The difference between a Dutch and an Old English Game is the color of the earlobes and size of the bird. Dutch Bantams will have white earlobes, and often be a little more deep in body and larger. Old English Game are smaller, tighter featherd, and have red earlobes.

    In my opinion, all of your birds are pullets.
