    I found these 4 wondering and no-one around the neighborhood would claim them so I took them home and in quarantine. I am pretty sure about the breed and gender of the red ones but the white is a cross of maybe an Ameraucana/Conchin maybe? I know the white one has scaley leg mites and I know how to treat that but the claws have me somewhat concerned. Their quarantine area is cement so maybe it will file them down scratching there. Should they be that long? I am not even sure how old they are. They overall look healthy unless someone sees something that I don't.

    Thanks in advance

    I would say #1 is EE / Faverolles maybe since the yellow skin of the cochin would likely show up, and the rest look like production reds. [​IMG]

    Thank you for the quick replies. Do they look like girls or boys?

    Quote:No, 3 isn't a roo, these are production red or red sex links, the roos combs and wattles would be HUGE, and if they are RSL, a roo would be a very different color. Also, the tail isn't right for a roo. [​IMG]

    Thanks that is what I was hoping for. I know this is a long shot but do they look very old, I'm not very well versed in that dept.

    Age is really hard to tell, even when you see them in person. From the comb color though I'd say they are definitely in production phase. [​IMG]
