    I am rather new to chickens. We got mutt eggs and the roo was killed by the family dog. I asked about breed and the guy said "it's a something racer or something"- [​IMG]
    I saw the hens and they were australorps here is a roo offspring. Is there any breed that is ever referred to as a "racer"?
    Thanks

    about 6 weeks old(blue/gray one) I did post before without the "racer" info so i wasn't sure if that mattered

    Quote:leg color is same as body color, kind of slate on the gray/blues and black on the blacks

    I was just curious if there is slang or anything that might be used on a breed that would have "racer" in it. The guy had NO idea what he was talking about, maybe he just pulled racer from where he sun don't shine. [​IMG]

    I was told they dont' have an orp shape by some of the wonderful orp experts here, so I have no idea. Maybe roo was just a mutt that someone told this guy it had some cool name [​IMG] just so he would take it [​IMG]

    klf73 do you live near Albacerque, New Mexico [​IMG] ? I just know that the ordinance for that town states that you cannot race [​IMG] chickens [​IMG] in town. Thats all I know about racers. [​IMG]
