    I just ordered a few mix crested breeds and a few mix rare breed chicks. I am unsure what they are, the crested birds are unlike the kind i have received before. Then the filler are two very small yellow birds, their wings have dark areas when they are spread. I am looking to sell a few and would like to give the idea of breed if possible. Thanks for your help![​IMG]

    cackle. there were supposed to be 10 crested. They look like polish, but usually when i get a polish many of their crests are round, these are a little different shape. 5 were supposed to be "rare" breeds. the 2 little yello chicks may be bantam, they are tiny compared to the rest.
