Out of our seven birds, I'm not sure what breed these two are. Any takers? Thanks!
The first one looks like a golden laced wyandotte (GLW). (rooster)
wow!! Thank you for solving out mini mystery Is this breed known for their size? Because he is the largest out of all of them!
Normally, yes, they get pretty big. But most out there aren't as big as they should be.
The black one is probably a black Andalusian.
The black one is gorgeous!!
The black one is a rooster too and I would say a minorca as a guess.
Thank you all! The black roo is the smallest of them all and the most dominant. I am happy to introduce Big Bopper (the GLW) and Johnny Cash to you all!
Yep, gold laced Wyandotte roo and Minorca roo are my thoughts.
Since minorcas tolerate heat more than other climates, how can I take special care of him because we do have fairly harsh winters.
How small is small, 'cuz that guy looks more like an Old English to me. The body's too upright and the lobes too small for a minorca IMO.
ETA: Minorcas are also the largest of the Mediterranean breeds and they have huge combs and wattles. Plus, true Minorcas are still relatively rare. I wish I had a pic of my black OE roo ... he could be your bird's twin.
