    Here's my OEGB. I was told this was a roo -- yes, no? He had a longer tail feather that appears to have been cut by one of my other chickens. And I'd like to determine his color also. Lavender or Self Blue?

    Also - here are my other Bantam boys. The one with the single comb is a Partridge Rock, correct? And the rose combs are Partridge Wyandottes, yes?

    Self blue and Lavender are the same thing..... just one is a more specific term and one more easily recognized. I would say yes and yes a roo.....

    Wyandottes can have single combs. It's a throwback thing and many say they have better fertility??? Nice looking birds [​IMG]

    Quote:Didn't know that either (about the comb)... so are they PRs or PWs do you think?

    And thank you - I think they're quite handsome myself! [​IMG]

    Based on the ones with the Rose combs.. I would say Wyandottes..... though, I am not familiar with the breed as I don't actually have any yet myself... but hopefully next year! [​IMG]
