    I was wondering if anyone could help me identify the breed of this guy.
    When I brought him home originally, I though he was a she [​IMG] ....boy was I wrong!


    This is another wayward chicken I brought home..I also thought at first this was a girl...now I think it is a boy, although he does not crow. Also, any guess as to breed? He has the cheek puffs like the Aracuna(?Spelling), or Easter Egger maybe?


    Here is a picture of them together.


    They are always together and seem to be the best of friends. [​IMG]
    Sorry for the poor photos... I will try to get better ones sometime this week.

    Any help will be appreciated.

    They almost look like a pair. I think the second one is an Easter Egger, but with the eyes and stance may be a part Russian Orloff?.

    Both are males. The black one is an EE, and the blue may be one too.

    figures I would end up with two roos [​IMG] ...I will try to get better pics of the boys for better breed identification. I was thinking that the black was probably and easter egger, but was not sure about the other one. Ya never know what you are going to get when you are a home for "wayward chickens!" [​IMG]
