    Looking for info on the 3 in front. Is the upright a rooster? And breeds on any of them? Resued 11 chickens last week and trying to figure all this out. Any thoughts appreciated.

    the black one might be an australorp. the other two look like either mutts or EE's. either way they're nice looking birds. and the one standing up looks like it might be a rooster

    Hello! The upright definitely looks like an EE roo. So does the other one in the front. Not sure about the black one.....I hope you enjoy them--very colorful!

    The person I took them from ordered them, so I thought they were not mixed, but I really don't know. I do remember her saying something about Easter Eggers, but I thought that was a general term for Bantams that do not qualify for breeding purposes. And I have 3 Bantam roosters, not pictured, that are much smaller than these. Thanks for your thoughts.

    I'd say the two in front look like EEs--note the muff (i think?) on the hen. I concur that the standing-up one is a ro.
