Can anyone help me identify my three roosters? They are about 16 weeks old. Thanks
Are they just picking their feathers out, or is the last one a naked neck?
The second pic looks like a Dominique.
The first, maybe a New Hampshire Red?
Two of them are naked necks (top and bottom pics)
Ah okay. Looks like you have a naked neck Dominique and a naked neck New Hampshire, and a normal Dominique
The naked necks are only partially naked, so I'm guessing they're Turken mixes. Mixed with what.....who knows. Something barred for the barred bird, but not Dominique as the rose comb is dominant. maybe a barred Rock, that's the most common barred breed.
The rose combed bird looks like a Dominique, but a full body shot would help id. His overall darker color makes me think he's not a pure bred bird either.
My son's third grade class hatched them as a 4H project and he got to bring the chicks home to raise. The eggs were donated by a local farmer so I figured they may be a mixed bag. We are totally new to chickens (we are beef farmers). You have been very helpful!
