Which ones which???

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
So I bought these chickens at 2 weeks from a friend due to them moving and not able to take them.
17 total. 10 red broilers, 6 cinnamon queens and one unknown extra.
Is what I was told
I looked on line and so many diff answers!
It looks to me that 4 are roosters >_<<br /> But then it says cinnamon queen roosters are white?

I'm all new to this and obviously still learning. Any info would help! Are the darker brown the red broilers? And light brown cinnamon queens??[IMG][IMG]

Am I correct to think the smaller dark brown are red broilers and the larger lighter ones are cinnamon queens?? That's what I was told anyways

The light brown ones look like your broilers, the darker one look like Production Reds or hatchery quality RIRs. Here is a picture of a Cinnamon Queen:

Are either one of those egg layers? I was told at least 6 would be cinnamon queens only 2-3 kinda look like that. And the rest look like "meat"chickens (what I was told they're for)

I agree with Chicken Girl1. The dark one all the way to the left in the first picture looks like a Rhode Island Red or a Buckeye. I can't see the comb, but if it has a single comb it is most likely a Rhode Island Red, if it has a pea comb it is most likely a Buckeye. Both of these are good egg layers. The Cinnamon Queens are amazing egg layers and are also known as ISA Browns or Golden Comets. The Cinnamon Queens are basically a mix of breeds that have bred to be super good egg layers....and they are smile.png However, age does depend on how many eggs any chicken will lay. Hopefully this helps.
