    Hi- These guys are about 5 months. They hatched at my son's pre-school, so we have no idea what sex or breed they are.[​IMG]

    First bird looks female. Not sure of breed, that fluffy butt could be Cochin or Orptingon, but not a pure bred of either of those.

    All cockerels after that.
    mixed breed
    Poor quality salmon Faverolles or mix thereof
    Mixed breed....I'm a sucker for blue barring [​IMG]. He's like my Tom, who got kept over for breeding simply because of his color and egg genes....


    And the last one is another mixed cockerel. He could have some Faverolles a generation or so back, or some EE, who knows?

    #3 is a Salmon Faverolles cockerel. All others are mixed breed cockerels.
