Hey folks... we got a group of chicks for free when they needed homes after being hatched as a school project, they were a nice group, 6 hens/5 roos... a couple of the roos had to be culled for hen mistreatment but we have since added some other 'mutts' from someone who couldn't tell us anything about her birds other than some came from a feed mill and some may have been hatched out at her place but she didn't know... I'd like an idea on what they are since hatching out our own chicks is something we'd like to do, but having some idea on a breed's 'normal' traits will help decide who gets to pass along some genes. The gray roo is a definite for us, he is now about 9 lbs and is very good with his girls and very people friendly and cooperative and though he is kingpin around here he doesn't abuse any of the other roos, he just makes his point known and then lets it go. I will number/name the pics for easier replies if anyone has an idea on our menagerie... 1. Grayson, pics are at age 5 months and 6 months old 2. Mr Greenjeans again pics are at about 5 or 6 months of age, he is about 8 lbs 3. Spock... hen about 5 lbs, lays brown eggs... VERY friendly, curious 4. Te'pal... hen... black eyes, 4.5 lbs or so... lg green eggs 5. Phyllis (yep, as in Diller), hen... about 4 lbs, green egg 6. Be'llana, hen...about 3.5 lbs, green egger, color doesn't show well in this pic, is a pretty chocolatey brown 7. Pidgy... hen, 4.5 lbs, friendly, green eggs, black eyes 8. ... and last but not least .. Napolean, about a 4 lb roo, under one year based on spur development, may need to be rehomed but clue on breed may make that easier any tips would be appreciated, I have ideas based on research I've done but folks who work with specific breeds can usually recognize them or their traits right away.... if more pics are needed just let me know,I'll try to get them if closeups or different angles are needed. Thanks again!
