    I have never owned any of the small breed. I took these due to them being in such crowded conditions. I guess I am a sucker for rescuing. any help would be appreciated. thanks

    By "small breed," do you mean they're bantams?

    They may be some kind of mix... with a crele type coloring...

    Might I say, those are some nice colors! The girl in the front is a Crele, the boy behind her is a mottled Crele (with something else) then you've got a mottled and far on the left is a standard Black Breasted Red. Nice collection [​IMG]

    [​IMG] yippee [​IMG] Thank you all very much. Like I said they were rescued and I only took them because I felt so bad there were so many crammed in a cage together. The girl needed money so I took these to give them some relief. Now as you can see they get to free range during the day with my others and my Great pyranees as really takin a liken to protecting them. They have been great to put up at night so guess they are keepers... I really appreciate the feedback from everyone.

    Quote:[​IMG] what a bummer................ well I guess a few guys will be finding a new home soon.. Wish it were the other way around. But at least this way I can find them a home that will be suitable for them. Thanks for the reply
