    Hello, I went to a swap saturday and was told these were Asils. The more I look at one of the hens, I think Dark Cornish. Can you please help me lol. The weird
    thing is the two roosters get along. Asils dont get along with other roosters??? The two roos look the same but the hens are different. There is 2 pairs.

    They don't appear to be true Asils to me. I agree with you, they look very dark cornish-ish.

    NO. Look like some Asil blood, but mixed with something. Asils don`t have wattles. Can`t tell the eye color, but Asils have white eyes, not red as most other breeds. PM me and tell me why you want Asils........Pop

    As the others have said, they do not look to be pure asil. However, there are select lines of asils that do not have the pearl eyes, but only know of a few breeders that have them.

    I just went out there, and they all have yellow eyes except the thick hen. She has a palish white. She looks like a cornish though. Lollipop, PM sent

    Body carriage, feathers, white legs, etc.. Almost looks like they could have some OEGB in them.

    As DT stated, there appears to be some OEG in all the others except the MOST DEFINITE Dark Cornish hen in the third picture. I have 5 of them and she is absolutely a DC hen.

    The third picture does look like a Dark Cornish. Not sure on the others, but I don't think they are purebred Asil.
