    These 3 are mixes, I'm curious what might be in their mix
    The 1st is a purchased chick, 2nd and 3rd are from DP hens/rooster inherited with the property.

    Thunderlina, 4mths she is a "meaty mix" but grew slower so lived.

    This is Boofy 5-ish months, I think she just dropped a shelless egg last night, 1st egg from her but she honks a bit like a boy.

    Boofy's half sibling Goldfish with Thunderlina who is same age.
    Goldfish has feathered legs and also honks a bit like a boy.

    P.S. The orange dog crate lid has a very determined escape artist broody under it [​IMG])

    Escape artist broody? If she trying to get out she's probably not broody. Lol

    She goes straight back to her nest and steals eggs, if she finds a way out the pen, hence the dog crate....and the brick...and the timber wedge![​IMG]

    Boofy may be a Polish mix. The others are so mixed that it is hard to tell what breeds went into them (for me at least).

    A Polish chook in Paraguay with an owner from Australia who was born in Africa.... now this homestead is getting interesting [​IMG]

    The parents looked nothing like a polish, just like all the local egg layer chickens, however a couple of chicks have a puffy boofy head and one has half feathered legs.
    So maybe there is a fancy breeder around town for me to discover! I may even get a chance to ask the previous property owner, she bought the adult chooks.
