    I was given these two chickens, I belive they are both roosters, if they are I don't mind, I know someone who takes them. I am still wondering about the brown one, he has 5 toes, and bright yellow legs. I can't seem to figure out what he is, he is also noticeable smaller.

    The white one looks like a White Plymouth Rock, it maybe a hen could you get a better side view picture? Are you sure the Red one has 5 toes? It looks like a cockerel, but if it has 5 toes it most likely is a mix.

    How old are they? I'm not seeing anything screaming cockerel excepting the red comb. If they are 18 weeks or more old they are pullets. I'd say it's White Plymouth Rock and Production Red, both hatchery stock. Five toes is an anomaly.

    This is a younger picture of the 5 toes bird. For the white one, he or she weighs about7 pounds and is 16 weeks old. So if that says anything...

    This is a side picture of the mystery bird, I put him in with my flock and the rooster of the flock treats it like a hen. Still not sure, it weighs about 7 lbs. Sorry I haven't posted sooner, BYC would let me post a picture for some reason.
