    Dont know what these are I posted about them a while ago...I was told that they are some kind of american game fowl. I think there is 2 roos and 2 hens, the one hen has the same colors as the roos but it is more feminine looking...wattles and comb are very small, they are all the same age. Anyways, the reason I need to get rid of them is because they need to be housed seperately from other fowl, they beat up my ducks pretty severely. They dont bother eachother...just ducks for some reason...and I dont have enough room to house them. I spent 5 dollars a peice for them, and thats all I want in return. Thanks. I would like to see them all go together.

    Im located in Northwestern IN, Granger/Elkhart area

    Heres some pictures

    Oh, I would prefer for them to be picked up, I have had birds shipped to me before but I have never shipped to anyone. I have hectic work schedule , I work at a hospital...so if I dont get back to someone right away, please dont lose patience, I will try asap.

    3 roos, 1 pullet...the "gold" hackled roos are golden duckwings, (commonly called greys). The pullet looks to be some kind of wheaten/black breasted red cross. Nice looking birds...

    They are probably crosses of different "families" of American gamefowl. Much like race horses and show dogs, pedigrees and maticulate breeding records were/are kept by breeders. "Greenish" legs usually indicates some "Hatch" influence, (fowl with lineage to a historic breeder Sandy Hatch). Some yellow legged fowl can be traced to an influence of China Gamefowl and/or "roundhead" fowl which show oriental gamefowl influence (asil). Fascinating birds to raise, although they require a little more care, (housing, penning and such), than average barnyard birds do.

    How many are you selling? In the photos it looks like you have 5 chickens, is that correct? Might be interested.

    I would love a green legged roo, but I live in Mississippi, so it would have to be shipped. [​IMG]
