    My dad gave me his two McMurray "exotic" breeds from his order. Anyone know what breeds these two are? The pictures aren't great, but the best I could get today. The red pullet in the background of the first picture is the same one in the other pics.

    The red is probably a Production Red. The other I'm not sure on.

    If you're serious that these were the exotics from McMurray's, then you got something rare. McMurray's exotics are almost always (97% of the time) EE cockerels.

    The white one's a rooster, that's for sure. The red one looks just like my production red hen.

    The white is definitely a rooster. you can tell from the neck feathers and comb. These "exotic" birds look like mutts. No offense or anything.

    Thank you all for the input. I have to agree the pullet looks like a production red. I was thinking the white roo might be a golden sex-link?
    Looks like I'm lucky that I even got a pullet!

    How old are they, the white looks like a Roo , the red looks pullet-ish but shes got some big legs.

    That little red hen looks a little ticked off in the first pic and wild and crazy in the rest [​IMG] I don't know what the rooster is....interesting.

    I would have to agree, they don't look very exotic, and a Sex Link roo and Production Red pullet is what they look like to me too. [​IMG]
