    This is my first ever post so I'll make it brief.
    I was given a few chickens awhile back, some Rhode Island Reds and a few Australorps.

    So, from what I've found on google this is a Bantam Silver Duckwing Welsummer hen...

    The rooster and hen on this side of the fence are the tricky ones. I thought they might be some sort of welsummer bantam mix?

    The roo is called Rusty, his crow makes him sound like he need a little oil...

    Rusty is in a land of giants.

    Thanks for the help and I'm glad to have found such a great forum!

    I think the reds ones are rhode island reds and that could be a Welsummer on top but it looks like its a feed store one and those are rare so it could be just a mix of a few breeds.And Rusty looks like a bantam mix very pretty.[​IMG]

    Thank you so much for your help. Rusty is great little rooster and pal around the coop.
