    What that really long tail, and the way he holds it, it's a Phoenix. Not a Leghorn.

    Yay. That is so exciting. I was really hoping for a fancy roo. Can you help me with a few others they sent? I'll post more pics

    Pullet # 1 and #2

    Hoping one of them is a breeding mate to that rooster.

    Looks like on Golden Phoenix and one Silver Phoenix. Only the Silver should be used for breeding. The other would produce offspring that would be considered mixed.
