    Well I’ve had these guys since Apiril 4th and I know for sure I’ve got once rooster because he’s started crowing at 5:30
    I love all these little fluffs by I am also coming to accept I’m going to have to trim down soon and sell off a few because my yard is way too small!

    But I don’t have many people to show off to but I have a feeling this is he right place to gush love for my chickens

    I got a batch of 15 from Mcmurry Hatchery and from what I can tell received:
    x4 White Jersey Giants
    x4 Buff Orpington
    x1 Australorp(?) pretty sure on that one
    x1 Leghorn, possibly a Pearl from the hatchery

    The other five including the roo are still a mystery to me.

    Welcome to BYC!:welcome You have a very pretty flock but I’m kind of suspecting that australorp is a rooster.

    Pic #2 & #9 for sure a Roo, possible the Australorp, not sure if I'm seeing saddle feathering or not.

    Your roo is some kind of game, probably old English.

    Welcome! The brown one in the first pic looks like an Easter Egger to me or possibly a Welsummer. And the Australorp could possibly be a roo too but could be a hen, time will tell for sure. Do you have any pictures of the 5 that you can't identify? We might be able to help if you have some close ups or individual photos.

    It might still be a hen. Some of my girls have very large combs so I'd wait and see. But the other one is definitely a roo.

    Your last photo is a game rooster - don't know the breed you can find out at "what breed or gender is this."
