    I had posted them before just for fun but now I'm not sure what the heck I got. They're supposed to be SLW bantams but the more feathers they get, the more I think, 'nuh, uh'. What on earth do I have?

    Don't mind the water. It's been cleaned out and the one in the back is a 5 day old cuckoo maran just for size-comparison. Someone mentioned that had some yellow fluff but it was just the picture. They have NO yellow on them. I'm stumped.

    Cuckoo Marans. Its one of those weird words where it has an 's' even when it is singular. [​IMG]

    Well, either way, I still don't know what the 2 in the front are. [​IMG]

    I can't find any good pics of an australorp to compare...

    Back is barred rock(If it was a marans it would have feathered feet, but then again they can be clean shanked but I still think barred rock)

    The one in the very front I vote Jersey Giant because of the yellow toes. I can see the feet of the middle one, but if it is yellow toed I ote JG and if it has white toes I vote Australorp.
