    Couple years ago i bought 4 rare breed chickies when i bought my regulars. They were like a grab bag, so i am unsure what i got. Two of them were the same looking... They turned out to be a Golden Campine and a Sicilian Buttercup.
    SO.. My other two were bothblack and white aschicks... Here are some not so great pictures of them as adults... Any guesses on the breed? They both are bantamsized also.

    The solid black one never developed a comb, the golden campine and sicilian buttercup i was wondering... They are hens, right? I waw never too sure about the campine, although i have never heard "her" crow.
    The black and white one and the black one i was wondering what breed they are.

    The black one looks like a Sumatran. The white with black is probably a Lakenvelder.

    I thought maybe the black one was a black sumatra, but wasn't completely sure.

    the speckled gold one is def a Sicilian Buttercup. Easily identified, as their combs will be split in two rows and at maturity look like a crown on their head. They are so sweet. Mine flys to the highest vantage point usually on the back of my rocker and coos sweet sounds to me! Here she is with some of my Buffs[​IMG]

    Unfortunately, my buttercup and campine are as flighty as can be... Is my Campine a hen or rooster? I haveno way to tell if he/she is laying eggs and I've never heard a crow, but the comb is huge and red.
