    Hellow everyone! I was hoping some of you guys would be kind enough to help me figure out what kind of chickies I have here. They're around 5 months old. I'd also be interested in knowing what colors they are?
    Thanks in advance!

    ^ A handsome little roo, I was under the impression he was a phoenix of sorts maybe?

    [​IMG]
    ^ This is Mumble, I'm pretty positive he's a roo. I'm thinking maybe a self blue D' Uccle?

    [​IMG]
    ^ Phoenix hen?

    ^ I'm thinking roo, but I have no idea what he is... haha

    Don't know about the others but Mumble is certainly a D'uccle. A lavender/self-blue.

    Are they all Bantams?
    First one is Splash coloring and either a rosecomb or Hamburg
    Second one is definitely self blue (lavender) coloring D' Uccle
    Third Silver or Golden duckwing coloring maybe a (silver or golden) Phoenix .....I think she is most likely silver.
    Fourth not sure
    Fifth Looks kinda like a jungle fowl

    I'm going with Splash Rosecomb on the first guy. And Mumble is 100% self-blue d'Uccle . And you have a pair of Silver Phoenix. The last guy... he could be some kind of game... I don't think he's a Jungle Fowl, because they are more upright and chunky than he is, and they have pea combs.

    Whoops.. You're right. I was thinking of the Sapian Jungle Fowl. My mistake. [​IMG] Now that you pointed that out, he does look like a Red Jungle Fowl.

    Are they from a hatchery variety pack? Probably helps to rule out some off the wall breeds. Love the first one, splash rose comb or hamburg. I also love the pullet.
