OK, so as I posted previously, I wanted to know whether or not I have some roos in the bunch. After furthur examination, these are the ones I have an inkling about, but I want to be absolutely sure before I take them away from the hens. I've already taken 2 of them out - the black Silkie cross & one of the black/whites (don't know their breed).


Also - if you can - could you please identify their breeds?!

1.) I'm sure quite sure it's a roo. Buff Orpington?




2.) I'm thinking I see some saddle feathers, yes?



3.) This one has some green coloring on its feathers.





4.) I'm very unsure about this one.





5.) This is another one that I'm very unsure of.



6.) This is one of the boys I already took out.



7.) Here's the Silkie cross I took out too. Any idea what he may be mixed with?

All are boys. The buffs look like Buff Rocks rather than Orpingtons, notice the yellow legs.

Numbers 3 and 5 look like Black sex link males. Number 4 could be too, but I think he's a cross of different breeds, possibly Buff Orp x White Leghorn?

Well, I would've said #5 was a hen, but he has some sheeny-green feathers on his wings. So I'm still inclined to think he is a roo.

I don't know why I should be surprised... these guys were all bought at an auction & my DH said they were all in a wire cage, so he couldn't really get a good look at them! *grumbles*
