    Can anyone tell me what kind of chickens I have? I thought they were EEs but now I am thinking not. [​IMG]

    Hello, and welcome to BYC! I'm pretty sure that EEs are mixed breeds.

    Greetings from Kansas, jesslooper, and [​IMG]! Pleased you joined our community! I am not a good breed guesser but they don't look like EEs. But the folks in the link below are awesome! You might try and get a little closer up pic, however. Here's the link: https://www.backyardchickens.com/f/15/what-breed-or-gender-is-this
    And if you'd like to chat with some local poultry peeps, find your state thread here and say howdy: https://www.backyardchickens.com/t/270925/find-your-states-thread
    Best wishes and thanks for joining BYC! [​IMG]

    G’Day from down under jesslooper [​IMG] Welcome!

    Sorry, I am not good at breeds either and redsoxs has given you a good link for some definitive answers. Is that your whole flock? The rooster to hen ratio looks a tad unbalanced.

    I hope you enjoy being a BYC member. There are lots of friendly and very helpful folks here so not only is it overflowing with useful information it is also a great place to make friends and have some fun.

    If you would like to share pictures and stories of your flock, you have come to the right place. BYC’ers never tire of these and do not back away slowly or commence eye rolling when the photo album or home videos come out [​IMG]

    I'm not great at the id game but they don't look like EE to me either...maybe some type of game bird mix. Check out the link redsoxs has given you and provide clear, full body photos to help identify them.

    Best of luck to you!

    Looks like too many roosters and too few hens. Please post photos at "what breed or gender is this." It's better to have individual photos of each.
