Ok....got three new chickens, the younger two are around 8 weeks, oldest is 10-12 weeks. There's 2 different kinds of chickens, the older one is different from the younger two. I have a couple ideas...but I don't know enough to say for sure. :/I'd love some help guessing their breed...:D
The smaller ones:

700


The large one:

700

So...what say you good people? What have I got here?:confused:

I'd say they're all pullets. The second one is an Easter Egger. I'm pretty sure the first two are both Partridge Rocks, but I can't see the comb clearly, though it looks like a single comb. Could you post some head shot photos?

Crap. That's one thing I don't need another of. My roo isn't treating "him" any differently than the other two newbies...wouldn't he be threatening him by now? :/

Cockerels that grow up in the flock aren't treated any different, especially while they are still young and immature. Up until last week, I had 12 cockerels in my flock, living with my adult flock in peace.

How's this?
And that's an Easter Egger.

Three things... 1) I agree they are all Easter Eggers...now I'm seeing greenish legs.(duh, right?) And I found a pic online that matches these little ones perfectly. So, EE...yep.

2) The larger one has three peas on his comb & it's fairly red for the age...so I guess I agree on the roo EE part. :( Really don't need another roo. Bought locally as a pullet...but maybe I'll keep him around for genetic diversity.

3) I added these three little EEs to an established flock of seven 4 mo. old RIR pullets and a 2 year old RIR roo. Wouldn't he be picking on a newcomer roo that's 11 weeks old? That's why I didn't think "roo." Ugh. :/

btw, THANK YOU for the replies! A couple hours ago...I didn't think I had three EEs. :lol:
