    Angry Bird is a red sexlink male.
    Gots Girls looks like a Black Copper Marans.
    Last To Bed is a Barred Rock.

    The Marans boy might be useful for hatching sexlink chicks, if you have Barred Rock hens.

    I have Barred Rock and Dominique hens. I have another that looks like the barred rock except it is larger, darker, and has some dark green feathers on the thigh. rg's

    This is the darker rooster with the green feathers on it's lower wing or thigh. Is it also a Barred Rock or a Maran or Dominique? Thanks. rg's[​IMG]

    Or the barred rock if you want purebreds. Depends on what you want. If you want just a flock protector and aren't interested in raising chicks you might want to just watch and wait to see what their temperament is and which one is best with the hens and which the hens seem to prefer.

    I have been watching, the best with the hens by far are the Barred Rock and the Darker Rooster I just posted a picture of, he is also the most vocal crower of the 4.
