    I have what I believe are Cayugas, however they are flying, well. They all look identical to Cayuga pictures I've seen online. The BEI pictures seem to be a lot smaller than my birds. My birds have longer necks and longer beaks than the BEIs do. The BEIs look like a Cayuga version of a Call to me. Two of my birds are around 7lbs and one is closer to 8lbs. I am linking my previous post about them flying over my house. I really need some good pictures to compare to my birds. This has become quite the mystery. Some pictures I've seen of larger BEIs their bodies resemble my birds but the heads don't, at all.

    this is one of them.

    Can those of you who have these breeds post some pictures. I will get some pictures later today when my DH gets home to help me hold them. I know it's easier for you all to see mine than to show me yours. But I would really like to see for comparisons.

    here is the link of my other post, about them flying.

    Cayugas are very heavy. Mine don't fly at all. Yours look like either a cross because it's very long/lanky and it's bill is the wrong color for a Cayuga--or a hatchery bird of some sort...

    They look like cayugas when you arent holding them....but when you have them they look like BEI's ...its so hard to tell...plus they have a little brown on their chests, maybe they are a cross breed? Anyway, if they are cayugas, they really, i mean really, need to put some weight on...nothing against you, but they just look really thin, i'm sure your feeding them!
