    The first Roo is really beautiful! The "fluffy headed" one might be a polish of some sort?

    I, unfortunately, am not an expert. [​IMG]

    So...anyone else have an educated quess?? [​IMG]

    Yep that looks like its pretty darn close! Black legs, sleek body. My guess would be that its a hen since the head piece isnt as large.

    I think both are mix breeds (the very best breed of chickens in my opinion). The roo looks to have New Hampshire Red in him. The hen could be a Polish mix.

    Quote:That's what they appear to be. The black one isn't a Crevecoeur- not nearly enough crest.
