    so there are mostly small banty sized birds-some in between sized and some large. I think we got a lot of them Id'd- but not all and the banties maybe aren't all identifiable someone said. so here's a couple pics to start. These are the bigger birds. [​IMG]

    so two or three of the 5 of these have muffs. thinking EE/barred rock crosses. I think they are all hens but they stayed bunched and the cochin roo seemed less than thrilled with our picture taking so he wouldn't get out of the way. they have next to no comb but seem a bit large to not have a comb yet. I know nothing about EE but I know my barred rock roos I have already have huge combs so I am lost.

    The barred birds are probably Barred Easter Eggers (possibly created by crossing a Barred Rock with an Ameraucana or EE). I'm not sure on each bird's gender, though I think I see mostly pullets.
