    I hatched out some chicks this spring and the following are the roosters I got.
    they are mixed, but I am hoping you guys can guess what breeds they might be.
    Number 2 is a possible dad, 3 looks like a possible dad (the actually roo got killed by a dog, i'm guessing thats his son, looks just like him)

    The next three I think are roosters, they are a month younger

    #1 possible Silver Phoenix cross
    #2 possibly red sexlink rooster
    #3 looks like a Welsummer or Welsummer cross-it's not unusual for Welsummers to have a few feather stubs between their toes and on their legs.
    #4 Black Sexlink rooster
    #5 Wyandotte cross-he's a handsome fella!

    Not venturing a guess on the others, but looks like you have a young Welsummer cockerel in that younger bunch, #8

    You have to refresh the page and the photos will resize for you. [​IMG] #5 has a rose comb, the proper comb for a Wyandotte.

    Could he be from a white Wyandotte hen? we have several white chickens, but those are the only ones I can see that could be that breed.

    lol, I realized that about the pics after I posted.

    Which roosters do you think would be the best to keep?
    we were going to keep 1, 4 and 6 (just because we liked them the best)

    Do you see any possibility of any of them being part game, we had a game hen hatch out 8 chicks, she dissapeared and we raised her chicks.

    Quote:#6 could be part game. I had a part game roo that looked like that once upon a time.
     
  8. How many do you have ? The first one is gorgous, The third one is some sort of game roo. If you like the 2cd one I would keep them all. You can not go wrong with game roos. They protect thier hens and they are fairly resistant to alot of diseases.

    You have a bunch of good looking roosters there. I always like the mixed breeds the best. So much character.
