    I'm guessing.. I haven't had chickens for very long and all of a sudden, I have a bunch.. A friend of a friend just dropped these five off- four hens and a roo ('m pretty sure there's only one). they are very pretty but all a different color. They couldn't tell me what kind they were other than they were given by a woman who gets all kinds from all over.
    I am excited about them as they are due to start laying soon.


    I think this is the biggest hen, she has a peacomb (i think that's what you call it) and pretty colors

    this is the roo.. he's kindof small but very flashy

    here are all four hens.. one black, one grayish, guinney-like color, one red, one black and hilighted

    from what I can tell you have three roos. The first one is a roo, then the one with the extremely big comb, and the one you refered to as a highlighted hen. Sorry...

    too bad you dont live in Arkansas, I would buy all 3 of them in hopes that they are ee. I have been searching for some.

    well.. I can keep one hubby says. If anyone wants the other two, I could mail them for shipping costs. I could mail them, couldn't I?
    Now just choosing one out of three pretty roos is going to be hard.
