OK, so I get that a lot of people who own chickens and other animals don't know what they have. I have several chickens that look kinda like --fill in the blank-- but they're mutts so I'm just guessing, but last night I was on a local internet classifieds list looking at poultry (because I'm addicted and even if I can't buy, I simply MUST look). First I come across a listing for bantam silkies. Click on the page to see the cute birds. The blurb says they're eight weeks old and nearly feathered out. The picture shows cute little white birds with smooth feathers, yellow beaks and feet, no feathers on the legs, and maybe 4 or 5 weeks worth of feathers. So maybe the pic was a few weeks old, but do you remember me saying they were supposed to be silkies? Clearly the person either has no idea what he/she is selling, or just likes the name and hopes some sucker will buy them anyway. Here's the link: link Next I come across a listing for Toulouse geese. cool, I have one, she's a sweetie. Click on the link. the picture has two geese, 1 is a white chinese. The other is either a brown Chinese or an African (look the same in photos to me. I have an African and W Chinese myself). Love that they post pics of birds that aren't what they are trying to get rid of, or do they not know what they have? I have no issue with "I've got a rooster to give away, come pick him up!" ads with no pictures (OK, so I do wish they had pics, that's half the fun of haunting the list, but that's beside the point) but if you're going to post picture and say what you've got, don't you think the two should match?
