    Don't know if you can see the one on the right or not....but wondering if both of these are crosses or no? The breeds confuse me![​IMG]

    The white one is probably a cross, and the one on the right loos like some kind of game chicken, not sure if its a cross though

    They are about 5 months old from what I've been told. One on left is definitely a roo, not sure about the one on the right, thinking it might be a hen....

    the coloring is similar to a silver laced wyndotte, but the comb is wrong....that would probably mean its a cross

    Both roos. The one on the right looks to have BBR coloration that can come from several breeds. He's still young and hasn't come fully into his coloration and probably isn't done growing yet. Try to get a broadside picture of him standing naturally so we can see wing/tail carriage, stance, build, etc.

    The other one I would guess is a silver Sebright/Cochin cross based on his coloration, build, stance, wing carriage, funky "single" comb, partially feathered legs, and hen feathering.

    I'll get a picture of him in the morning, I was told he was a roo too, but haven't heard him crow yet, while the other one has been crowing away. They are both from the same farm, and both around 5 months old, so I'll be interested to see how their coloration changes as they get bigger.
