    These two chickens were rescued from an apartment. Any ide what breed they are? They are a cream/white color with brown spots on the sides. Found out that one is a roo after he serenaded my neighbors for an hour nonstop.

    Are those pictures of the same chicken or 2 different ones?
    If 2, I would say you have 2 roosters.

    Sorry don't know the breed. Maybe ISA Brown?
    Pretty boys.

    They look like my red star roosters from McMurray. Some type of red sex-link boys.

    Red Sex-links, and those are both roosters or a photo of the same rooster.

    Thanks, they are pics of the same chicken. The second one is exactly the same color but a lot smaller in size. However the comb is about the same size as this one.

    Since you now know they are both roosters are you going to keep them?

    Were you hoping for eggs or just doing a good deed?

    Either way they are very pretty.
