    I have a few birds that I got at a local poultry auction and was wondering if anyone could give me some ideas on what kind they are.

    Have 2 of these hens

    Have 7 of these and will be taking 5 back to the auction next month

    These are the hens that go with the rooster in the picture above

    Is this polish a rooster or a hen ? I'm thinking rooster but it hasn't crowed yet. Its head was allmost picked clean of it"s feathers and I felt sorry for him and just had to have him, I know he will look better eventually.

    First two look like Dark Brahmas, but they have a pea comb and the rooster has a single. Maybe Silver Pencilled Cochin? Cant see the third picture. Then Easter Egger then Polish then Rhode Island Red, I believe.

    I'm not to sure but the first two might be pencilled laced Cochin's, last one Rhode Island Red.

    from what I can see of your rooster from the side and what's left of his poor little poof....it looks to be a rooster. The hens have really nice formed "poofs on their head. The rooster's have a more "disheveled" poof. Hope that helps a little. [​IMG]

    I have answers for you

    1st pic -- silver penciled cochins
    2nd and 3rd pics -- look like birchen cochins
    4th pic --EE
    5th pic -- Polish looks like a roo
    6th pic -- RIR


    Compare your 1st pic with my silver penciled cochins:

    Thanks everyone, I have several more that need ID"s also.

    The first is probably around 3 months old and I think it is probably a mix but what do you think the mix is? I know it's pretty hard to see through the fence so here are several pics.

    I'd say silkie/EE

    Tuft reminds me of silkie crosses but the poufy head/neck feathers says EE!
