    Greetings all.
    I was recently lucky enough to be given about 10 unidentified birds. I'm halfway there with identifying a few of them but these 2 have got me stumped!

    Any help appreciated x[​IMG][/IMG][/IMG]

    You'll have to wait for some UK members to really help you out, but the one with the crest looks an awful lot like the UK version of the Araucana, so it may be an Araucana or a mix.

    That's what I was thinking too. From the group shot I'm thinking chances are they're mixed, and the different breed standards get confusing for my poor chemo-brain lol.

    The first bird looks like a mixed breed hen, no definite breed jumping out at me there, but she is female.

    Hi Donrae. Thanks also for your input.
    The group photo, I'm ok with all of the others apart from the small game type bird in the middle. Was told she may be OEG but others have said no lol
