    I don't have pictures now, but I have one new-laying hen, one supposed-to-be laying pullet, and a rooster. To me the hen looks like a Japanese, but she is super tiny and lays almost-white eggs. The pullet is my sweet pea and is pretty much wheaten colored. I'm thinking Nankin mix for her. The rooster has a Japanese shaped tail, but he is far too big for a Japanese. He is white with a black tail, black wing points, and some Black and Tan hackle feathers. I'll try to get a few pics, but I'll be grateful for any input.

    Trying to ID birds without pics is a bit like shooting in the dark. If you can get some photos posted, we'd be happy to take a look at your birds. :eek:)

    Yes, I know. I'll try to get some photos tomorrow. I'm surprised how little photos I take of my birds, guess it's just not something I think about.
