Hi all!

So I believe we have 5 roundhead hens, 1 roundhead roo, 1 golden comet (think is hen, but don't know how to tell), 1 black australorp (don't know sex), 1 black and grey chick (no clue at all what breed) and I believe 2 EEs. Can anyone confirm?

Can you post single chicken pics...each bird separate would be better to help identify them.

In the first picture I see a silver laced wyandotte, and Rhode island red. The second pic is an Easter egger, the third maybe a black copper maran, the fourth an Easter ether rooster, the two in the fifth are both mixes, and the six is an Easter egger.

I haven't found a good source that I trust yet, about Roundheads but I did find this:

Game birds, commonly used as fighting cocks.
The Roundhead is a breed of rooster, considered to be of Asian origin. Its eyes are red, with black spurs and peacombs, but its legs can be either white or yellow.
Averaging four to six pounds, the Roundhead is a medium-sized gamefowl. This cock is a smart fighter prized for its agility and its side stepping evasion trait. It possesses a vast amount of leg power and is generally a fast cutter and is very aggressive.

Yes. The man we got them from was going to use them for fighting. Even the roo. We saved them from that life.
