    Hi everyone, I've been browsing BYC for a couple of months now and decided it was about time I join. I'm still wet being the ears but thanks to thanks to y'all I decided to start a small flock about a month ago. I'm really looking forward to being able to bug y'all with my many newbie questions.

    I'm not 100% sure and the guy I got them from didn't know their breed or age either.[​IMG] The rooster's comb didn't really show up until about three weeks ago.

    We have a lot of guys from Bama, including "Bama Dude," on the' Old Folks Home' he has quite a sense of humor. How old are your birds? Looks like you have 3 pullets, one is getting a red comb but, depending on age, she may be approaching 'point of lay.'

    Your red birds appear to be Production Reds. The black/gold bird could be an Easter Egger or possibly a Black Sex-link. The red bird with the huge comb is probably a cockerel, but the others are pullets.
