    Hello, first post from a new member. I just found this site recently and got excited so i took some pictures of the ones im not sure about.

    I ordered them from Ideal Poultry as st run


    The first little one is extremely friendly Bantam

    This little one has some strange feathers on its wings, they are heavily curved but more towards the body than out like a frizzle. Its also a bantam

    This is a rooster......well 98% sure I was hoping someone knew what breed I know its Not a bantam as its the biggest/tallest bird I have. He is missing tail feathers from a disagreement with a Russian Orloff. I see some "sickle" I believe, feathers starting to show up.

    Here is a picture of it next to a salmon favorelle pullet from the same order.

    Now, this bird was suposed to be an ideal 236 leghorn, but as you can see it has black legs and no comb. What is it? It has solid black eyes and looks like a hawk.

    The rest of these I know what they are, I am just posting pics of them.

    This is my favorite and only white bearded silkie, she is the protector of all the eggs as its a community nesting area.

    This is my Buff Silkie "twit"

    This is phillaphel, dont ask about the name, no idea. He is a Mille Fleur D' Uclles Blue.

    Chick #1 is a Mille Fleur D'uccle. Your other D'uccle is not mille fleur, might be a mix.

    Chick #2 I have no idea...

    And your unknown rooster is an Easter Egger. Technically called an Ameraucana but EE's are Ameraucanas with no particular color and don't meet the APA standards. Also, your unknown white one is an EE.

    What is the difference in the two other than color, the black one is only about 5 months old. The gold lace on his chest feathers is really starting to show and his feet feathers are showing more and more white. They both have the ankle or knee feathers. I am kinda new at this identification. I have also heard that ideal poultry doesnt sell show birds, which would explain it.[​IMG] Thanks for your quick reply.

    Quote:Mille Fleur is a color of D'uccle. That's not what the breed is called. It's a common misconception. You have two D'uccles, one is Mille Fleur and one is Black. [​IMG]

    Quote:An EE is a chicken that has Ameraucana or Auracana in its gene pool. They can be a combination of mix(es) with any other breed(s).

    They are basically a mutt chicken, but because of the Ameraucana or Auracana gene the hens will generally lay some shade of blue or green eggs.

    A clue to EE chickens is the slate colored legs. (There are other breeds with slate colored legs, though, so it is not the only factor.)

    Another clue is "chipmunk cheeks", which is a trait of the Ameraucana, which has a muff when it is mature.

    Some EE's with Auracana in their background will be tailless...

    There are almost endless variations on what an EE can look like.

    Hope this helps.
