    I had lots of different kinds of chickens as a kid just bought some chicks.
    What I thought were black sex links
    But a lot of them are brightly colored with purple and green feathers and curving tail feathers I am afraid I have something else
    (As far as breed) and sex I sooo hope I am wrong but I do remember sexing chicks when I was a kid and I think about 7 of my 20 are roosters
    They are heavier, bigger combs and waddles
    And very shiny feathers and they are "mock"
    Fighting with each other ughhh!!
    So I Put up some pics of three of them happy to take more if anyone cares to guess!
    Thanks!!

    [​IMG] hope someone in the What Breed section can help you out, good luck. Oh and the ratio of roosters to hens should be 1 x 10.
