    We suffered our first casualties on Halloween and lost our beloved roo & a hen. Naturally I came across someone looking to rehome their flock, so we're adding 5. Chicken math at its finest. The description came as "2 Ameraucana hens, 2 mini roos, and an unknown hen". Mostly wondering about the roos & other hen.. the 2 do look like ameraucanas, but correct me if I'm wrong. Hen # 3, maybe polish or cross? No clue, havent had any or researched. Roo (#4), I haven't a clue in the world. Roo (#5), Ameraucana? Any input/opinions are welcome! [​IMG]

    # 1 & #2 look to be Easter Eggers, #3 does look to be a Polish. #4 rooster looks to be a Columbian Old English Game bantam. #5 rooster is a Blue Red Old English Game.

    Awesome, thank you both. I wonder what kind of chickies I'd get if I hatch some in the spring. I've also got australorps, buff orpingtons, and a laced wyandotte. Excited to have such a diverse flock!
