    Any idea of breed or gender? They are about 10 weeks old. Earlier I was thinking roos because of the red but now I'm wondering if they are red-faced breeds.

    Here are the three in question.

    This one has a feather pattern similar to that of a peacock.

    These two appear to be the same breed. In the sunlight they have green/blue (teal) feathers on their backs.

    Thanks for any help!

    They are all three the same breed, the are Dark Brahma bantams, the grey one is a pullet and the two with the black breasts are roos, but the one in the last pic doesnt have very good coloring. Look up Dark Brahma bantams and you will find pics of what they should look like.

    Wow you guys are fast and right on target! I looked up Dark Brahmas and that sure is them. When I bought 8 chicks at the feed store I forgot to write down what they all were. The others I know but these were mysterious. Thanks !!!
