    Does anyone have an idea on what these roosters and chickens are? The pure black ones are only 1 1/2months old. The white chicken and roosters are unknown. Also how do I tell apart my roos in my barred rock flock? They to are only 1 1/2 months old.

    The pics are kinda small and my eyes are kinda old, but I believe the next to the last pic is of a dark brahma rooster. The hen standing next to him - white and black - is a light brahma hen.
    ETA: The white and black one could be a rooster, but it's hard to see in that pic.

    Sorry the pics are small gritsar but on dial up and it takes for ever to get them to download. I had hoped the one rooster was a brahama. He has the feathering to. The black ones are making me scratch my head. They came with my barred rocks and buff orphingtons and for the life of me I can't seem to remember what the breeder said they were. I was hoping they are the black jersey giants.

    The first black one could be an australorp. If it is a Jersey Giant it will have yellow on the underside of it's feet.
