    Its not to breed for show, this is just my backyard flock that i put all of my production and unknown breeds into so i dont keep track of crossing or any thing (exept occasionally for the RIR's) If it helps, the hens that are with them are australorp's, EE's,RIR's, and a cornish cross.

    I like the top one cause he is the prettiest. Guess it just depends on what you want to get out of it.

    Yeah, it is rather pointless to ask which one to keep unless you have a goal. [​IMG]

    If you want more color, choose the silver duckwing on the top photo. (Or is it?)

    If you want more meat, choose the Production Red.

    If you want more eggs, choose the Production Red.

    Is the top roo supposed to be a Phoenix or a Wyandotte? I really can't tell in that image.

    Quote:I'm just going to get rid of 2 of them, and I cant decide which ones to get rid of so im posting it on here as i truly have no goal (only to keep a flock without ordering more birds every time a few die).
    And im not sure what breed the one on the top is, i just got him for free from one of my aunt's friends.

    If you don't care than I think the more important thing is which one is the nicest to deal with. Beauty aint no thing if its backed by a nasty bird. I am hoping the top one is the nicest cause he is pretty.
