My Lovelies!

This is Morris.

He is the leader of the 3 who live in the outdoor run with him. I got him from a petshop here in Rotorua as a chick. He's a gorgeous fella but I have no idea what kind of chook he is! Any insight would be much appreciated. :)

This is a terrible photo of my sweet loving Honey.

She'd be horribly offended if she knew I'd put up a photo of her with mud all over her, but she had been in the vege garden again! She came at the same time as Morris, from a petshop in Rotorua.

This is Cluckles.

She is the only one I have a real idea about the background of. I picked her up when she was much smaller from a lady who told me she is a pure bred Pekin Bantam. I don't really know how definite that is, though.

I also have a wee lady named Persia, who I haven't snapped any photos of yet! She's also a bantam from the same place as Honey and Morris, but much younger.

Unfortunately your photos didn't come through so we can't make any comments.

There is a sticky about how to post photos : viewtopic.php?f=12&t=19

Hope this helps.

Alternatively please feel free to email your photos to me and I'll put them up.

Yes, can see the photos now. They definitely are lovely chooks. Cluckles looks like a Spangled Pekin to me. The other two are an interesting mix I'd say.

Morris has a bit of a crest and a very spiky comb. He could be a Pekin x Silkie, possibly not a first cross.

Honey has quite a bit of Pekin in her but there is a little bit of something else involved. Hard to say...

Honey's colouring and feather shaping makes me think she's a Welsummer X Pekin somewhere along the lines.

Morris' comb is more a rosecomb than a walnut comb like most Silkies I've encountered...

yep, I'd agree, Cluckles is a Spangle Pekin
Honey is interesting! not sure
Morris's comb reminds me of my Hamburgs
