    the high school was having a poultry auction and we just had to go look. so i bought these 3 mixed breeds the hatched,supposed to be EE mixes. any idea of what kinds they are,or if i got lucky and got pullets

    Looks like pullets except for the middle picture looks like a cockerel to me. I believe he is also the one in the bottom left hand corner of the last picture.

    it was really crazy in there, i didnt even try to bid on anything else. when these guys came up i thought they looked cute. anyway when i went to pick the ones i wanted there were some definate roos in there, bigger,redder combs. when i got home i started thinking,oh this one looks like a roo. im going to keep my fingers crossed,i have 2 BA hens that everyone swore where roos lol

    Yeah, I believe the middle one is a roo.

    That's a perfect combination!

    You could have one hen laying eggs for you to eat and the other one brooding some chickies!

    That would be so cute.

    Quote:oh belive me it was tempting lol. but the fact that it was for the school made everone bid really high. i paid 4 bucks apiece for these guys and i think that was about some of the cheapest birds,well and my hubby bought 5 meaties for 10 bucks. one lady paid 57 bucks for a polish chick. at least the kids made some money.

    It was a good cause and you got some pretty little mutts!!

    I'd say the one you suspect is a roo, is correct... but it's still a little too early to tell.

    Oh wow, you guys over in America get them cheap!

    Over here there are prices ranging from $5 to $20 for a measly production red. Got mine for $7.50​
