Help determine breeds!

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
I've already determined the sex of them but have no idea what they are besides the Plymouth barred rock. Can anyone help. They are about 6 weeks.

The white one looks like a White Plymouth Rock, the cockerel looks like a mix, and I'm not sure on the yellow looking one.

Where did they come from? Several of them look like mixes, and I'm not sure the barred Rock is a pure bred bird either. That comb and wattle looks like a cockerel, but a pure bred bird would usually have a lot more white.

We picked them up at rural King out of the rainbow bin so it's possible they are.

I set fire to the rain! Watch it pour as I, touched your face. Well it burn while I cried, because I heard it screaming out your name. And I threw us into flames. I knew that was the last time, the last time...I set fire to the rain! -Adele

The yellow one looks similar to an easter egger- this one I have is mixed, looks similar to mine

Huh. I think Rural King orders from a hatchery, so they shouldn't be mixed breed birds. 

the white one is probably a white Rock

The barred bird still looks like a black sex link cockerel to me. 

the tan-ish one may be some type of slow broiler, like a Rainbow or Pioneer? It's got pretty thick legs and a sturdy looking body. 

The dark cockerel, I'm not sure. He's probably an off-colored hatchery......yeah, I got nothing :/
