    I am having so much fun with my 27 new girls. They are out in their run, scratching in the dirt and roosting on their roosts. Could anyone help me identify their breeds? They are from the rainbow mix from McMurrary.Also they all look great except 3 who seem fine except for having bald necks. Is this something I need to or can do anything about?

    I believe the bald necked ones are naked necks :) they're supposed to look like that!

    I agree with Bantamlover21's guesses.

    Thanks for all your help. I'm feeling like I know them better now that I can identify their breeds. When will I be able to know for sure if they are cockerels? I'll have to get rid of them, bummer. Glad the naked necks are the breed and nothing's wrong with them.
