    These guys were dumped in our fields yesterday and I caught them today. They are very friendly and have definitely been hand raised, so I'm going to try and find them homes. Any idea what breed mixes they are before I start advertising them?

    They look like Easter Egger (EE) Roosters to me.

    Quote:You, X2----barnyard quality Americanas/Easter Eggers. Probably dumped because they're roosters. Pretty guys, look a lot like mine.

    thanks! I had a feeling they might be, and yes they were dumped for being roosters, we get a lot of those, but normally they aren't this friendly and I just let them wander until they get eaten by something, but not these guys! [​IMG] They deserve a second chance to be someone's pet.

    I'd guess anywhere between 5 and 7 months.
