    Ok...so I've resigned myself to the fact that these are probably Roosters (first time chicken owner, 25 assorted straight run from McMurray...of which I think I'm CURSED with 80% Roos...)

    All 3.5 weeks old. Red combs and red wattles coming in on a bunch of chicks now (the giant Dixie Rainbow was first with a real wattle at 2 weeks, 6 days!)


    What breed do you think this is?

    And this? (Wondering about maybe Brown Leghorn?)

    I don't see a white earlobe, so probably not a leghorn.

    First one looks like it could be a Delaware. Def. cockerels.

    I think a Delaware and brown Leghorn cockerel. Leghorns and Welsummers are quite similar, and you can't always see the big white lobes on the Leghorns til later, so time will just have to tell on him.
