No clue as to breed (mixes?) and I have my doubts as to gender now...

    The biggest one has started crowing, and I caught him/her doing the rooster wingy dance this morning.... the first one pictured has been sick for the last week, but I'm pretty sure she's a hen, of course you wouldn't know it because she isn't laying, and the middle one, I'm pretty sure "he" is the bigger one's brother...
    Pictured are little Daisy (top 2 pictures), Long Neck Napoleon (middle 2 pictures), and Fatty Rainbow (bottom 3 pictures).
    I apologize for the image quality, it's raining today and the nearest camera on hand was the iPad- no flash...

    1st im not sure on
    2nd maybe a cornish
    3rd looks like it has a beard so possible ee

    but it is really hard to tell due to the lighting of the pics if you can get better pics when its not raining that would help a lot

    Is my assumption in 1 hen and two roos founded, though?
    I'll grab the better camera and snag the birds when they're settling in for bed for some better pictures.

    Ok, just to follow up- no pictures this time (sorry). I had some time this afternoon so I took the two roosters back to the farm where they came from- Cornish mixed with Auracana. I brought home two hens this time, one leghorn and a hen Cornish/Auracana mix from the same brood as my original three! the two sisters will be happy to see each other again!
