    The first pic looks like a rooster all right. But not sure what breed.

    #2 looks like a Campine -- but the picture is small. Pretty birds though! [​IMG]

    Thanks! I think that she's very pretty too.
    I googled a "Campine" and she really does look like a Golden campine. That is why I love this website. There are so many people with so much knowledge and they are all willing to help others. It is so awesome! [​IMG]

    I'm going to go take some better pictures right now and will post soon. The chickens in the pictures that I posted are from an auction that I attended last week. I probably won't buy chickens like that again, but I wanted some chickens in the *WORST* kind of way! The bad thing about the auction is that you're bringing home bad things from another flock (realize that now in 20/20 hindsight) and it is too hard to really look them over when they only hold one up from each box). "Cammy" (I'm going to name her that now) had watery eyes and sounded like she was clogged up a bit. I brought her in the house, warmed her up and put some eaucalyptus oil in some hot steaming water next to her pen and that seemed to do the trick, though I'm worried about the possibility of her infecting my others. I have her in a separate pen right now and the other two that were in the same box aren't showing any signs of sickness, so I'm hoping that maybe it was just the ride to the auction (maybe they had the box in the back of a truck or something?) and the stress made her upset? Anyone have that experience before? I read where chickens don't typically get colds and that they should be culled if they get sick, because even if they get better, they can still carry the disease. I hate to do that though if it just was from the ride. What should I do?

    Also, do you treat your newbies with anything before introducing them to your flock for worms or such? I have some Food Grade Diatomaceous Earth that I'm going to mix in with their food (I read to mix 1#DE/50# feed) and I'm also going to sprinkle it on their pen floor. Anything else that I should do?
    Thanks all! I'll post better pics in a few....
    I truly appreciate the help!​
