I ordred a rarest of rare collection plus blue andalusians. It has been fun trying to figure out what I have and I think I am done. Down to the last 6 but will post a couple pics everyday to confirm that I am right with all of them.
IF I AM WRONG DO NOT TELL ME WHAT THEY ARE


I am bleary eyed from looking at pics on internet and in books

Silver Dorking back by request





Marans (these may be were I am wrong) These I think are my two free ones so when you order rare are your free ones rare too


I think a Phoenix








Buttercup



Sumatra



Buff Cochin



Blue Andalusians




More Pics


Silver Penciled Rock (thanks for helping figure out I was wrong)


White Crested Black Polish (Tina Turner)


White Laced Red Cornish


Blue Cochin


Patridge Cochin

Does your dorking have the correct number of toes? If not, he may not be a dorking.


Need to take another look at the Modern BB Red Games.

Marans - are you talking about all four birds in the photo or just the two barred ones? Marans have white skin, feet, & beaks.


Phoenix - I'll agree with you on that one.
Coloring is Silver.

Buttercup - I think you're right on that one too!

Sumatra - looks good!

Buff Cochin - yup!

Andalusians - I believe you're right.

Good luck!

You're right, Kipepeo. They are white laced red cornish. I've had some myself and hatchery stock WLR cornish look exactly like that.

RSL are single combed and not as tight feathered, folks. They have a whole different body shape.

Quote:Awesome!


Quote:I'm with ya on that one now.
If you can get to a poultry show and look at some real modern games, they look really alien.
All legs, neck and big ole eyes.


Quote:Good call on the cornish!

For your barred birds, maybe they are Marans. I neglect to consider that hatchery marans are sometimes off color because they aren't selectively bred to standard. Generally, the other breed I was thinking of has much clearer barring even for production lines.
