    Old farmer said he had "about 90" of these running in his barn, I had a weak moment and brought 6 of them home.
    These are newest additions making a total of 12 chickens [​IMG]

    Was reading posts on Light and Dark bars, tail feathers and none, are there roos in this pic?

    these two are like simease twins but are they different sexes?

    one more shot of tail feathers

    Thanks all !

    Roosters are lighter than the pullets.

    Hey there and thanks for the replies.

    The top picture (bird on the left) shows what the combs look like.
    I think they call that a "double comb" Sorry the pictures aren't that clear.
    The combs on these are 6 are wider than the combs on the BR's pictured earlier.
    But they look "bumpy" like BR combs.
    Just that one has a red color comb plus light feathers, Hope that's a roo !
    the rest of them have flesh colored wide combs.

    I see chicks in my future [​IMG]
