    We went to the monthly auction we have in these parts over the weekend and here is some of what we came home with.


    First 2 pics are of the same bird, Is this polish male or female?

    same with this one, male or female?

    I'm guessing this is a hen but she is mean as all get out and will try to fight any rooster.

    I have a few more pics to take of some others we also got , we had to build a new pen for them and I am trying to let them get used to it.
    thanks, Terri

    Welcome Terri, nice pics. Love that black and white one! I can't tell you anything about this breed though. Someone else will though. [​IMG]

    Male polish have "spikey hair". The female have a more rounded fluff ball.

    I would say yours look to be male.

    Here are some more pics of some of the others we got saturday.

    Are these all roosters?

    Does anybody have any idea what kind of chicks these are? they didn't seem to know at the auction and I'm a sucker for chicks so I had to buy them.

    And check out this guy we really thought he was pretty, had to have him too.
    thanks again everyone, Terri

    Your babies look like Barred Rocks. The pictures of "the other guys" looks like you have at least 2 girls. They have the infamous feather loss due to a rooster mating. You got some pretty roosters though!

    Those don't appear to be pure Barred Rocks- at least one has a rose comb and the tails are too perky and the wings hang wrong or the bodies are too upright, don't know which. They look sort of like a mix.

    The chicks look like they may have a TEENY bit of serama in them just cause of their shape.

    Out of the chick you have there are 3 roos, and they look like barred rocks to me. But it is a little brownish off color [​IMG]
