    We just picked up the replacements sent out by MMH (21 total). There is one breed (5 sent ~ these could be the ones used as fillers???) ) in particular that we were wondering about. The heads are a reddish/brown (1st and 2nd pictures below...) Any help is appreciated. We had ordered the Ornamental Layer Collection.

    (Buff??) Cochin , I know the picture is fuzzy. It is more yellow than the next girl.

    (Buff Laced???) Polish,could almost be White Polish, but I think they have darker areas around the eyes.

    Thank you all again.

    Ok, I got some clearer pics of the unknowns. I sent some pics of to MMH as well, they said they may be able to tell us, haven't heard anything back yet.


    TIA

    The above chick is a Egyptian Fayoumi. They are a very beautiful bird! And the other two are probably a Buff Cochin and buff laced polish. Cant really tell by the pic...could be a white polish.
    Good Luck with them!
