    We picked up 12 more "layers" to add to our flock early this spring 4 black australops, 4 new hampshire reds, 2 silver laced wyandots, and 2 auracanas. All were supposed to be pullets. Clearly not true because we have 2 black australop roos, a rooster i m not sure of the breed, and one that i think is an auracana roo. Both of these birds came out of the auracana trough at rural king. I m thinking the one is a roo silver laced wyandot and the other is a roo auracana.

    Auracana?? Hen Or Roo??

    Two cockerels - the first is an Easter Egger, the second is a mixed breed of some sort
