    The top bird looks like a light brahma (maybe cross). The next 2 are partridge cochins, a pair. Top bird is female, second is male. As for the D'uccles, I dont know on the black ones, but the other does look like a millie fleur. NN I will be of no assistance.

    The first section of "Young Adults"
    *The first 2 pics are of Light Brahma Roos
    *and next 2 are Light Brahma Pullets(girls)

    The second section of "young adults"
    *First 2 are pics of Partridge Cochin girls
    *3rd is a young partridge cochin Rooster

    The Naked Neck is a mixed color Rooster(young).

    The first pair of d'Uccles are mixed colors and poor quality(pets). Whatever hatchery they came from has no sort of quality control in their breeding programs. This is what some hatcheries have started trying to pass off as "Brown Red d'Uccles".

    The mille Fleur d'Uccle Roo may have decent color, but physical type is not going to be good.

    All are pet quality hatchery birds. Sorry to be so blunt, but that is what they are. [​IMG]

    Thanks for all the help guys! Good to know what they are [​IMG]
    And the three d'uccles I actually hatched for a friend of mine, ROFL, I don't have the heart to tell her that, ha, ha [​IMG] I think she just raises them as pets anyway. I am laughing so hard right now, I must have a wicked sense of humor.
