    Thanks everyone. I'm really not familiar with OE's.
    So the white & brown one is a roo? The only one who crows is Blue Godzilla chicken......

    I wish I could keep them all, but I don't have enough room and no $ to build another coop. At least I can make sure they go to good homes. You should have seen how much fun they had today in the grass, stretched out in the sun and dusting, eating whenever they wanted. It made my day.

    Quote:I second that on the OEG, funny the red pyle has coloring like a roo but looks like a hen.

    silver duckwing is a hen

    I am so sorry to have to respectfully disagree. The brownish red one really looks like a Golden Comet hen and NOT a RIR.
    She isn't deep enough red. JMO
