    AND...what the heck are they?


    They come from Townline Hatchery.


    When I contacted them (sent pictures) this is what I got back.


    Quote: So.... with the above reply...What can these be??!?!?

    This is the bigger of the two - has a bigger comb

    The wings are different:

    As you can also see in the below picture, they have a bit differant feathering colors

    The tops of their heads are different, as well as the neck feathering...:

    And a short video (is that a beginning of a crow I hear?):

    Well, what ever they are, looks like you have a pair of them. Congrats ??[​IMG]
    Could the differences just be sexual differentiation?

    Tbitt, they look like the same breed, maybe just came from different parents. Like the difference you see in the EEs?
    I don't want to mess with with my internet connection to much by trying to get your video to load :p , but if your hearing something that sounds like the chick needs to do a shot of WD40 .. then you have yourself a roo!

    It is so funny, the noise it makes sounds like a chordal, but the way it moved while doing is looks so much like a roo crowing. It is rather funny looking in a a bird so small!

    Sure sounds like it's trying to crow to me, and the movement gives it away.

    Too cute! I've never seen such a young lad trying to crow before.

    Thanks for the suggestion Nicole, but that breed is not on the list that Townline sent me (list posted at the top of post #1).
    This is a tad bit frustrating....


    He is about 4 weeks old. I had pulled him and the other chicken from the group to separate them and he was upset. Maybe being so upset gave him the idea to crow. I don't know but I sure did giggle when he started doing it!
