    just picked up 6 little cuties... all same colour but different markings.
    im guessing they are a cross but have no idea from what. easter eggers?
    on a few, the comb (or where it should grow) has two rows?

    i also picked up two HUGE chickens...a couple, any idea what breed they are?

    they are easter eggers. Very pretty too! the ones that have 2-3 rows on the comb are probably roos. pullets only have one row of bumps. the big one looks like a buff cochin.

    Buff cochins. The cock is GORGEOUS (I don't know enough about cochins to tell how he compares to the standard, but I adore his tail feathers!)

    What did the seller say about the chicklets? For reasons I do not understand, anytime a breed is unknown, or a cross is suspected, people say EE. MOST crosses are not EE. MOST unknowns are not EE. If the females grow up and lay a green egg, then they are EE.

    I think the young ones look like Fayoumis. Check out the breeds header above and look at the adolescent chicks. They look a lot like yours.

    hmm shall check out the fayoumis now. im trying to remeber what the guy said they were but cant for the life think. he bought eggs from someone and hatched them under his broody hen, so its not any of the ones he has so i cant go back to look.
    are they likely to keep that colouring? i love it [​IMG]


    and yes the big black one is a pig....(!)
