Hello, my husband surprised me with 3 baby chicks after years of bugging him for chickens. He bought them from tractor supply company from a bin simply marked pullets. Breed wasn't a huge deal for me so I didn't care until one of my pullets recently sprouted a huge red comb and wattles. They are almost 8 weeks old. I'm pretty much convinced the one is a rooster as the other two are identical.

blurry rooster? Haha

Any guesses on breed? And can somebody confirm the rooster suspicion from the blurry pic? (And anybody want him? Haha)
I can try to take better pictures later if need be. Thank you!!!

I would say you are right and you have a rooster, and I would think these are either rhode island reds or production reds.

Agreed; you have one Production Red cockerel (the front bird in the bottom pic) and the others are Production Red pullets.
