    They are four weeks old, eggs were labeled as mixed pure breeds.

    Oddish, Mudkip, Shinx and Lucario.

    Here's Shinx, who is the easiest to handle,

    Oddish, who is mostly white with random grey feathers in the wings and tail, also has quite a few feathers on the feet.

    Mudkip, who really dislikes being handled.

    Lucario, who is very friendly, (mudkip is on the left of the first photo)

    thank you for any help! :)

    -the guinea pig run was just temporary so I could take pictures of them close together-

    Lucario looks like a barred rock roo

    Oddish is a roo?

    Shinx is a pullet

    and mudkip is just cool.

    But those are just guesses. But I think Lucario is pretty spot on.

    I like Oddish and Lucario for roos. I can't tell you anything about the breeds though . . . they look pretty mixed up. But what pretty birds! I think the mixed ones are the prettiest sometimes. Nice pics, and neat names. I might have to steal some of those . . . [​IMG]

    Not too sure but-
    Shinx- Speckled Sussex (no experience with the breed)? and pullet
    Oddish- No idea, and roo
    Mudkip- Silver-laced Wyandotte? (again no experience with the breed), and pullet
    Lucario- Barred Rock roo

    Lucario is a Barred Rock, he could be a girl, his\\her pattern is that of a female and it looks like he\\she has round neck feathers indicating a pullet. Oddish might be a leghorn or a delaware, I think its a cockerel. I think that Shinx might be a speckled sussex pullet. Mudkip could be a SLW, again probably a pullet. Cute chicks [​IMG]

    Quote:Actually that is a coloring of a male. The females have more black, the females are black with white stripes and the males are white with black stripes. Someone on here has a very good example photo.

    ETA: I will get a picture of my BR pullet tomorrow and you can see the difference. And are far as the feathers, they don't get the pointed shiny feathers for a while.

    The only one that looks like a roo to me is Lucario. Looks like a barred rock. His comb and wattles give him away. I agree that Shinx looks like it might be a Speckled Sussex pullet. Oddish looks like a Cochin pullet to me but I don't have much experience with the breed. Mudkip looks like a pullet but I'm not convinced it's a Silver Laced Wyandotte. It's feathering doesn't look like mine, the legs are black, and the comb is single. SLW's can have a single comb but the standard is rose. Their legs, however, are yellow like their skin.

    Oh, okay. I thought he looked more black than white though, but you're the one who has had experience with them.
