    These cuties are so sweet, they follow. Me every where and the blonde peeps loudly when I leave. I only got them today but have no idea what kind they are. Also I'm hoping they aren't roosters. Any ideas?[​IMG]

    The black one looks like a Black Sex-Link pullet, and the reddish one is likely a Production Red. I'm leaning towards cockerel on the reddish one.

    x2...and I'm leaning towards Buff Orpington as not red enough for Production Red....uh, second look...there is some patterning on the wing and a bit more red...might be a Gold Star. Time will tell with the red/blonde one.

    Cockrel ? Oh too bad. What is the defining feature? I guess I'll have to wait and see if it crows :) thanks everyone
