    I've already determined the sex of them but have no idea what they are besides the Plymouth barred rock. Can anyone help. They are about 6 weeks. [​IMG]

    The white one looks like a White Plymouth Rock, the cockerel looks like a mix, and I'm not sure on the yellow looking one.

    Where did they come from? Several of them look like mixes, and I'm not sure the barred Rock is a pure bred bird either. That comb and wattle looks like a cockerel, but a pure bred bird would usually have a lot more white.

    We picked them up at rural King out of the rainbow bin so it's possible they are.

    Huh. I think Rural King orders from a hatchery, so they shouldn't be mixed breed birds.
    the white one is probably a white Rock
    The barred bird still looks like a black sex link cockerel to me.
    the tan-ish one may be some type of slow broiler, like a Rainbow or Pioneer? It's got pretty thick legs and a sturdy looking body.
    The dark cockerel, I'm not sure. He's probably an off-colored hatchery......yeah, I got nothing [​IMG]
