    **individual bird pics in the comments, 18 in total** We've caught on, we don't have what we thought we bought. We thought we had RIR and EE. Here's a photobomb of the flock. I've taken a million photos over the last 7 weeks, it was hard enough to narrow it down this far ;) Anyone have any idea what kind of birds we have? [​IMG] This one because isn't my chick loving son adorable. The bird in question here has been dubbed "Easter" [​IMG] [​IMG] Easter is low left, assuming the tiny one is RIR, top left has been dubbed "Goliatha", as she is now huge (assuming a meat bird) [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] Our roo. Assuming small RIR in the background. [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] Goliatha on the ramp, what are these? [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    It would be a lot easier if you posted one pic of each bird, most recent is best. I'm having a hard time figuring out how many birds and who is what.

    I do think the cockerel and the large pullet look like some type of slow broiler, like a Pioneer or Rainbow.

    Where did the birds come from?

    Okay. I'll get on it after the kids are down. They and from a local breeder whose getting up and going. The person distributing chicks got a bit overwhelmed and had a huge mix up. It's been a pretty nasty, drama filled ordeal. We will definitely be doing things differently next time.

    So mixed breeds are a possibility? That "EE" doesn't really look like one, but I'll hold off pending better pics.
