    Hi. I just bought a hen and 3 'chicks' and I'm not sure what they are. They're probably a mix but I believe they are wyandotte of some sort? Also there is one that seems to have a more pronounced comb that may be a cockeral but I'm not sure. Any thoughts would be very much appreciated, thanks!

    Hm, the mother hen seems to have wyandotte blood in her judging by her comb and over all body shape, colour wise I would say there is something completely non-wyandotte in there. As for the babies it looks like they have lightly feathered feet, and quite the nice buff columbian pattern, so I would say they are at least half buff brahma.

    And I must agress that lil one with the pink comb does look like a roo.

    Yes the chicks do have a few feathers on their feet. I got them at an auction so I have no information about their background and I was just curious. I guess I'll know for sure if I have a little roo soon enough.

    Thanks for your input [​IMG] .

    Think there is a heavy buff brahma background.....
