    I've already learned that my naive self bought 5 roosters from a man telling me they were pullets (weeks ago). Was wanting layers, but now i've confirmed that they are indeed roosters, now I need help with the breed since I've been told they look like red rangers meat birds [​IMG]Ignore the dominique :) he can't get out of pictures to save my life

    [​IMG]one is a pullet but still questioning the breed

    Need better pics but they are defiantly in the red bird category.

    Production quality Rhode Island Reds, most likely. The red is lighter than a show quality Rhode Island would be, but they have the makeup of some of the production birds that I've raised in the past for meat.

    On second thought,they are just mixes,too light,and too mnay black dots everywhere,dark browns etc.They'll be very pretty though.

    Agreed. A lot of the "production RIR" birds have a few other birds mixed in there. It often leads to some dark black feathering. I've seen a few that even get a few white spots, but all in all they're too light red, and have hidden colors. Hatcheries often call them "production RIR" so that people who buy them don't expect them to look "exactly" like the Standard of Perfection.

    Any idea on the breed and sex of this chicken?

    I believe it's about 8/9weeks old, not quite sure.

    Is it a polish cross?

    It could be a polish (albeit not a show quality one), a sultan (albeit not a show quality one), or could possibly very well be a mix between a polish and a sultan. It definitely has a crested head, which leads me to say polish cross. Based on the color pattern, perhaps a polish crossed to a golden laced Wyandotte.
