    These are being given to me, and their current owner is not sure what they are. They're about 12 weeks old and he got them from a private breeder. Any ideas? I'm stumped![​IMG]

    I don't have them yet, so I can't take a better photograph. Columbian Blacktails? I have never heard of them. I guess i have some research to do.

    I have listed them in the breeds section

    and my avatar is a Columbian Blacktail Pullet Hen [I have 3 of them]

    They are basically same as Warrens [Rednut Rangers]

    I dont think we have those in the US, they just look mixed breed.

    They're more likely something less exotic, like New Hampshires (which do have black tails).
