I'm still not sure breed or gender.

  1. The only ones I am sure of is my black sex-link roosters. [​IMG]
    He is about 10 weeks old. His daddy was RIR and mama was a BR

    This is a chick one month old, I got out of the heavy bin at Atwood's. It is large and aggressive. I feel like it is a
    rooster.

    This chick one month old, was black until a few days ago now white and brown is coming in. I thought is was either a Jersey Giant or an Australorp but now I have no idea. No sign of a comb yet, so maybe a pullet.

    I have some more pictures but am having trouble getting them downloaded. I will try again in a few minutes.

    The first one is a black sexlink cockerel, with that parentage.
    The red is probably a Red Ranger.
    The last one could be a black sexlink pullet.

    BSL cockerel
    Could be a production red cockerel, could be a Ranger or similar meat bird.
    Can we see the comb and legs? BSL pullet is a good possibility
     
  5. I could really use some more layers and sex-links and red rangers are good layers. I think the one that might be a red ranger may actually be a roo though. Thanks to everyone for the feedback. Both of these were labeled "Heavies" not what I consider sex-links/rangers to be.
