    Chicken #4 I realized I don't have a good picture of. Looks just like Ding only has a lighter feathers. Also my husbands and its name is Dong. In this pic she is in the middle blocking the golden sex link and has her head up.

    In this pic she is front row third from the left.

    Thanks!

    okay now looking at all the photos I can't tell ding and dong apart in them. I can't tell which pics should go with which bird. [​IMG]

    I see all girls, and I think blue is a black sex link, which have the reputation as being very good layers of brown eggs.

    The first one is either a gl polish or polish cross. If it's a pure polish, she's pq. She may be crossed with some sort of game.
