    Ok, finally posted enough to link images of my birds so here we go.
    I've had these chickens for some time, I actually caught them in my yard, one of our neighbors, not sure which, be it across the street or down the road has their chickens running free and unattended so I setup a little trap and caged these few. Anyways, I assume they're all just a mess of barnyard mixes but if anyone can ID a possible breed to any of them that would be amazing. I live in Southern California and in some places they've caught people fight the cocks so I'm kinda leaning towards them being a game type bird.

    One of my roosters, he's a very good flyer, and pretty sure he's a type of game cock.

    One of my hens I'd like to get an ID for, again, pretty sure it's a mixed game hen.

    And another hen, mainly want an ID on the one in the corner, but if anyone can guess the others too that'd be nice.

    And my biggest girl atm. I feed her large grubs when I find them, so now she thinks my fingers are grubs and likes to peck at them. [​IMG]

    He's a beautiful rooster, Honestly I think he maybe a purebred.. I have seen pictures on BYC of roosters like that called a phoenix I believe..

    I'm no expert though [​IMG]

    Ive had phoenix, and I think the rooster is a phoenix mix. He doesnt have the true phoenix body type, he is not quite as long as a purebred one would be, also his tail and esp. his saddle feathers arent as long as a pure phoenix should be. http://www.cacklehatchery.com/phoenixpage.html

    Quote:Oh nice nice. Yeah I looked at the info of the bird on this sight and my guy is obviously lacking in the long tail feather department, but it's pretty cool to know he MIGHT be a mix of phoenix and something else. They are very pretty birds.

    His markings are pretty close and his tail is actually pretty long. I think you can safely tell people he is part Phoenix. [​IMG]

    Quote:Lol, I'm just going to add it onto the list of things he might probably be, he's a little of this, and this, with a pinch of this, and a dash of that. Plus side is we hatched an egg from one of his girls and ended up witha young rooster that's turning out to look just like him, so I'll have two this and that roosters. [​IMG]
