    Help with breeds, please! Bought this group of chicks from MPC and Ideal... besides a few specifics, I got about 10 from each hatchery of their “egg layer mixes” and ended up with atleast 6 Roos. But, I have no clue what these are... one clearly a rooster, and 3 darker red hens with black on their tails. Any clue, experts? Or newbies??? ‍♀️ Much appreciated!

    First one is a Welsummer cockerel. Second looks to be a Buckeye, maybe a pullet. Third looks to be a Production Red, likely pullet.

    Buckeyes have pea combs. I thought they all looked like singles.

    Second looks pea combed to me, a single comb should be much larger at nearly 3 months. Closer, clearer pics would help.

    All that have pea combs are Buckeyes. If they have a single, they are Production Reds. Welsummer cockerel.
