    I recently picked up 6 chicks from a local livestock auction. Half look to be RIR but these others have mentioned stumped...any ideas?

    Mixed breed -- the second one is a cockerel.

    I figured they were mixed and going to be about impossible to ID. And the pictures are of the same bird. I know several are cockerels. But I was already set up and brooding buff Orps. So what's one more brooder box? At least that's how I saw it.

    Heck, they may all be cockerels... But I couldn't pass them up for $2
