    ok I probobly will not be able to post pictures till tomorrow but i can discribe them. ok, I have now 11 chicks some close to 5 wks and some close to 2 wks, 5 are close to 5wks and the others are close to 2wks. the oldest ones are supposed to be barred rocks and rhode island reds and one I have no clue what its supposed to be. the ones that are supposed to be barred rocks have no barring and are almost completly black with just a little white on their flight feathers. the ones that are supposed to be rhode islands are a reddish brown color with some black and sort of blond coloring. and the one I have no clue has white flight feathers most of the wings are white and it has some light brown feathers coming in and some of the wing feathers have some brown mixed in with the white. 2 of the 6 new ones are completly black and are supposed to be black jiants they are about the size my first ones were when we got them but a week younger than they were. two others are light yellow all over have feathery feet, very short wings (i think they are maybe just 1 week old) the few feathers they have on their wings are a whitish/grayish color and the guy we got them from said "wel dese ar goin ta lok lik dis wen dey big (shows pic of light brahama) and dese gonna lok lik dis wen dey big (shows pic of black jiant)" so yeah. and the last two he said "dese be gam birs dey smal perty brds" and they are VERY small even compared to the "brahamas" but have almost all of their wing feathers, have black and brown stripes down their backs have a black stripe over their eyes and their feet are really small and slendertheir legs are slender too. BTW they all have 3 long toes and one short one. (all meaning all 11) so can you help? and when I post pictures can you try to tell me what gender they are?

    ok well what kind of game bird do you think the games are? and we got the older ones from the feed store and the young ones we got yesterday... on the side of the road where people sell junk [​IMG] probobly not the best place to buy from but I was with one of my grand parents and she will buy me anything as long as it is not over 50 dollars [​IMG] so when we saw the sign that said "chicks for sale" we had to stop and we ended up getting 6 chicks from, well... lets just say not the best place/person.

    Old English games are the most popular, Modern Games would have long legs.
