    We got some free fertile eggs at a swap meet thought I could figure out the chickens breeds after hatch:lol: Have posted for the button quail already but not sure how to make a different album for the chickens, sorry. Also the turkey was a ebay find "fertile Guinea eggs" ya I know shmuck. Ordered 4 one was fertile and out popped a turkey if you know the breed would like to know. Yes I have already been asked how could I not notice the eggs looked like turkeys, Never hatched guinea or turkey eggs so didnt note any egg differs. Any help telling me what chickens we have this time around would be great... oh yes and maybe a breed for our turkey/guinea:rolleyes: Thanks ya all. Let me know if the pictures went I'm new to the pictures!

    Wow. I am just starting to look at them and there is a barred rock for sure, one is silver laced but looks kinda like an oriental, the hens look like an oriental breed. The turkey looks like either a white holland, broad brested white, or a midget white.

    I changed my mind. The barred one has a peacomb so I am going to say they are all oriental type like shamo.

    Is Shamo a good breed with others? They are all pretty birds. The black with white feathers and yellow legs is very different very long legs. Funny to see out there with the others.
