    I see evidence of Cochin and Polish but a few are so obviously mixed that it makes me think they all are. Were these from a farm with "assorted bantams"?

    The red and blue in the first pic appears female. The buff Cochin appears male. The crested black/blue is hard to tell from this pic but the other looks female and it likely is as well. The red Cochin appears female but hard to see it in this pic. Both silver birds appear male despite having different comb types. The single silver bird looks male but looks to be the same one that was in back of the previous picture. And both sapphire/blue looking birds in the last pic appears to be male but better pictures of some of these would help.

    Oh, it took me a minute. Action is supposed to be auction! I couldn't figure out how bantam auto-corrected to action but I've seen stranger things.

    Multiple sellers or all from one?
