    Ok, all my life I only knew of three breeds my entire life which sounds very silly but its true. They were RIR, NHR and the other kind. And that is exactly how my grand father would refer to all other breeds. They were clumped into one catagory "The other kind". So, I need a little help here in learning about my beautiful boys. I know the black one is a Guinea or how ever you spell it. He was given to me without me even knowing what he was actually for. All three of these boys have grown together. And the previous owner (an elder lady) passed away and her son brought them to me. -shrug- They sure are cute!

    Sorry photobucket kept freezing up so i couldn't resize it! I am sorry for so big!

    Phoenix cross? It looks like they have small "muffs" so possible EE x Phoenix?

    You know the really pretty thing is that the black has tints of green and purple to it.. So, when the sun shines on them they are just so colorful.

    This picture is of the only RIR that survived from the neighborhood dogs disaster that took 25 of my chickens and before moving not a single person apologized for what their unmindable dogs did at my farm. Now I have no clue what it's sex is. Anyone wanna take a guess?

    That RIR looks like a rooster.. um, with no tail.
    but the comb is small.

    I'm not sure what these are but EEs are peacombed and peacombs are dominant to straight combs so I wouldn't think an EE cross is the likely answer. But they are attractive silver roosters and best of luck with them!
