    I bought 6 chicks, one he told me was polish and I'm not sure of the other 5. They all look pretty similar so I'm assuming they are all the same breed or maybe a mix of some kind?

    Also I'm thinking the one with the curly tail is a roo! Let me know what you think. Thank you![​IMG][/IMG][/IMG][/IMG][/IMG]

    I don't think your pictures are all showing up. They do look like mixes with the top one being barred, the second one looks like a roo. Can you get a shot of their heads so we can see the comb on them also?

    Great thanks guys :)

    I've realized how tough it is to get rid of roosters so I'm not going to buy chicks again until I move to the country of course!

    Hopefully a few will be hens! Fingers crossed!

    Just as I suspected. I think four out of six have pointy neck feathers. I was just hoping it was my imagination :(

    Is it possible to get individual pics of each chicken. You could be right about the pointy hackles on 4 out of the 6 but sometimes pullets will have coloring that gives the illusion of hackles. Hackles along with saddle feathers will have a shine to them also.
