I got some chickens from a lady down the street who was just wanting to get rid of them. I have since realized that just about everything she said about them is wrong...she told me that 'the big white one lays white eggs'... turns out it's a white Plymouth Rock and I have no idea how she knew it laid white eggs, as it is too young to lay eggs, plus rocks lay brown...she also sold me two 'Araucana and banty crosses' as she called them, but I know they are not true Araucana, and she had no idea that there were multiple kinds of bantam. I got a definite pullet of a very interesting color, and what I thought was a rooster but it does not crow or act like a rooster at all...now I'm wondering if he's a pullet too...and after looking at some photos, I am wondering if there is maybe some D'Anvers in these two? Here's pictures the day I got them, they were pretty scruffy and the brown one's tail has grown back better now. I'll try to get nicer pictures tomorrow too. What do you think? What in the world are these? They're about half the size of a normal large fowl, but are very heavy and solid for their size, and really big/wide in the breast. You don't expect their weight when you lift them, they are chunky! Strange color pullet...what would you say this color is? I really love it and have never seen one like it. This...rooster or pullet? D'Anver cross, you think? This one has a big floppy comb while the silver has a little tiny comb. The tail has filled in more, but it's not long at all. I'll try to get a new photo of the tail filled back in. Both have beards/ ear muffs also, but they are very small. I also have two younger birds similar, sort of a buff and black spotted mixture... the lady said that the pair pictured was the parents, but I don't think she knew what she was talking about, as the silvery one is not even laying yet.
