    They look like game crosses, and the two red/white birds may be cockerels.

    Guess my best bet would be to go to my first source of a local person who has some actual hens. I appreciate the response. Thank you kindly [​IMG]

    x2. We'd need better pics of the red and white birds to be sure on gender. Regardless, if you're in this for egg production, you'd be better going with a dual purpose "farm chicken" rather than an game chicken.
