    I have a friend that has three rposters that have to go. They free range and have been flogging her 2 year old son. This is a pic she sent. She's trying to figure out a breed or even if they are pure. Maybe someone on here will be able to help.

    The one in the back with the big comb reminds me of a Welsummer Roo. Nice looking birds.. too bad they're so aggressive!

    The one on the right looks like an Australorp to me. I'm not sure on the other two. The one in the middle could be a Welsummer, but there are a variety of breeds that have that color and I'm only moderately familiar with them. No idea on the little guy on the left. Are those feathered legs I see? Hopefully someone else will post that has more experience.

    Quote:They only bother her son. They don't mess with the 2 girls. But I think the boy messes with the Roos. His grandma told me he likes to pull their feathers so I think that's the major problem starter.

    Quote:I havent seen the birds in person but that got my attention. It looks like feathers. I'll ask her and see.

    The one in the back looks to be a partridge rock, the black one a australorp the other one a brown leghorn mutt or a poorly marked rosecomb brown leghorn.

    The one on the left looks like a mutt. The one at the top is a Partridge Rock and the Black one looks like a Black Australorp.
