    Good Morning!

    We had a gorgeous christmas day here in Northern California! Spent another day out in the sunshine and had a lot of clucking fun!

    Seeing all the girls grow up is amazing, but I think I have a couple of Roo's in my "all female rainbow layers" What do you guys think? I also have some breed and coloring questions...

    This is my little runt... is that a Roo comb? What breed or color type is he?

    These white "girls"???? all have a developing comb, But I don't know if this means they are roos for this breed. What are they?

    I'm not sure if it is just me, but your pictures are not working.

    Ok, I fixed it! Silly me... I was clearing off my upload page and didn't realize that the forum "links" to the photos... not just copies them.[​IMG] What a goofball! Just having a blonde moment![​IMG]

    The black one in your 2nd pic looks like a black sex link.

    Thank you! I had my doubts about the white ones... are those leghorns? (Total newby here... I'm trying to match up pictures on the breed page with the chickies.)

    The white ones are most likely leghorns.

    Most EE's just have a mixed color that can't be called anything since its mixed, which applies in the case of your girls.
