    picked up some cheap chickens off a 2ndhand site, it was a 'mixed lot' so no guarantee there is any purebreeds lol

    i got 5 roo's and 5 hens


    silkie feathered hen - so guessing a silkie cross? (but doesnt have walnut comb, or 5 toes)

    small size roo - [​IMG]

    silkie feathered hen + another white small hen - [​IMG]

    teeny tiny roo - is same size as my chabos but definatly not a chabo [​IMG]

    bantam sized hen - looks like a bsl - do they come in bantam size?? with what i think is a peking (cochin bantam) [​IMG]

    another 2 small roo's - [​IMG]

    #1 hen is a silkie mix hen, both parents were probably silkie mixes to get a silkie feathered offspring.
    #2 rooster looks like a favorelle cross. He is really handsome!
    #3 small hen no idea.
    #4 rooster - looks like a belgium booted bantam or a Cochin cross from a Mille Fleur project (this rooster has some bad scaley leg mites, you need to coat his legs in veggie oil or vasoline often and clean them every day or every other day with listerine mouth wash then re-coat with vasoline - this will kill and smother the mites)
    #5 the big hen in back is a cochin/pekin the one in front looks like a BSL like you said, and yes you can make bantam sex links
    #6 looks like a cochin or favorelle cross
    #7 no idea, maybe a booted bantam cross the color and body look like a young belgium MF

    The last hen looks like a new hampshire hen but with the feathers on the legs I would say she too is a cross. Really beautiful birds tho!

    well someone lay me a huge white egg in that pen today...seeing as they are all small hens im quite shocked at the size of the egg (its bigger than my australorps and RSL's eggs...!)
