    Ok I am trying to figure out what the proper/correct names are for a few of my chickens. I'm also looking into finding out what breeds some are. If they don't have a breed name listed with the photo they are the birds in question.

    This is my Turken Roo...Color?

    I don't know about the Turkens. All I can say is that they are very colorful! [​IMG]

    But the last hen is a Silver Laced Wyandotte.

    The Turken hen looks like an incomplete blue laced red.

    The boy looks like a splash wheaten

    Hope that helps! [​IMG]

    Really? The first Turken looks sorta roosterish with those tail feathers the way they curl?

    Thanks. I was hoping she was one of my silver laced...But then again she doesn't look like one. I have 3 of them. All look the same but none look Silver laced. Will she eventually look right?

    You probably wouldn't have any lacing left. [​IMG] You would get a buffish colord wheaten
