    Hi guys, I have a few chicks that I have absolutely no idea what they are and a full grown bantam roo ho is absolutely beautiful and I'd really like to get some LF versions of him. Any idea what these are?

    The one in the back is a SLW but what is this brown one? Single comb with pink earlobes.

    These two have similar brown color but rose combs.

    Thanks. All the chicks are LF. That's a bummer about the bantam. He is so beautiful, but he crows something awful! High pitched squeak at 4 in the morning every day. Sounds like someone is strangling him. I kept thinking he would get better at it but he never did. I had hoped to get LF to have some where the crowing was tolerable. It grates on the ears. Guess that's not going to happen.

    On your rooster, you could get a couple different breeds with a similar look. They wont' be exact, but a blue Wheaton Marans or Ameraucana would be a similar coloring. So would a blue-red Leghorn. Again, not exact but those are a couple places to start looking for a large fowl counterpart with a similar look.

    Thanks, I was actually just looking at marans thinking the same thing! And I've been wanting to get some Ameraucanas in the flock too.
