    This is Snoogy, bought as a roo, looks like a roo but no crowing yet?? Its been 3 days.

    Little splashy girl, we thought was a cochin but really not THAt curvy :p. These are mostly younger pictures, she hasnt gotten very big though.

    Grumpy Old Bat, no idea what she is.


    Falcon. ive posted his pics on the site before, but today after moving all my layer breed chicks, i noticed how much smaller he was then the girls, theyre basically the same age, i thought he was an EE, standard, but now im unsure.

    Snoogy looks like a lavender/self-blue silkie. I would say roo, does he have "streamer-like feathers" coming out of his crest?

    I don't have much experience but the 2nd p9ic looks like a splash cochin to me.
    Grumpy Old Bat has me clueless. [​IMG]

    Falcon looks like a very handsome EE boy. I can't wait to see how he grows out for you.

    i dunno if the splash girl's tail feathers have been picked on or what, but to me she look like a cochin/ arucana mix. but who knows?

    I would say snoogy is a splash, he looks like ours and he's a roo, you can tell by the comb, that is undenible. He will start crowing with time, Lol.

    Falcon & splash came from the feed store (they get them from mcmurray). bat is just ugly, i think. I think she lays a darker egg than everyone else though, but not super dark.
