These sweeties were given to us and this is our first flock! Please help me identify these beauties!!
Thanks so much!
They look to me like cross breeds of some kind. The ones with the bare necks are naked necks, or naked neck crosses.
The white one may be an Easter Egger cross of some kind, or a columbian wyandotte or columbian rock. I'm not quite sure about the gold colored ones. They may be buff orpington crosses. Maybe someone who knows more about chicken breeds could chime in here.
Here's the bad news---they are probably all roosters except the white one (and the white one may also be a cockerel. That type of coloration in Easter Eggers usually indicates a male). How old are they? Where did you get them from?
I love your coop though! It looks so well-built and new :)
Yeah at 7 weeks with all that red comb development you have a lot of boys going there. The red ones are probably production reds (sold in the feed store as Rhode Island Reds) or crosses if they are just barnyard mixes from a friend. If that is your first flock that is a lot of boys to contend with and you may not want to get too attached.
I agree that white bird is your only chance of a pullet, the rest are cockerels.
A natural light close up picture head on of the comb that is not blurry will help with the white one, and a free standing side shot with the breast and wing side. We are just rooting for you to have at least one hen out of your bunch. The comb picture will go a long way to helping determine both sex and breed.
