    I got these 3 roos last summer and dont know what they are.
    Will need to take some to the monthly county auction on Sunday,
    & know would help to know what they are so I can decide who to take.

    The first and last I got as chicks.
    The middle came with some ameracauna hens.

    They all were claimed to be Ameraucana - but with those single combs
    I dont think so!

    Thanks for any suggestions.. [​IMG]

    #1 looks like a silver laced wyandotte mix
    #2 not sure would help if we could see his chest.
    #3 looks like a blue laced red wyandotte mix.

    First could be slw mix
    Second looks like brown leghorn, but what kind of comb is that?
    Last one could be a lot of things, really.

    You've had them a while, and since they're not purebreds and your're not breeding purebreds, I would cull according to temperment. Who is respectful of you and nice to the ladies, stay. Who gives you the evil eye and acts like he's gonna charge you, goes.
