    Really helps if you say how many and what age ;) For all I know it's all the same bird. Or four different birds.

    However it looks like one bird to me. It looks sick, though.

    I am no expert on breeds but have a fair bit of experience sexing mongrels. I think it is an extremely underdeveloped male brahma cross. Or something feather-footed crossed with a light sussex. I see yellowish and reddish colored feathers on his wings and so he's definitely not purebred. Unless he's from a breed I've never heard of, which is entirely possible.

    I see very subtle signs of male feathering, but its development is normal for a female.

    I agree with Sjeane, looks like a light Brahma to me as well.

    oh, i didnt consider those to be redish, i just thought it was some dirt/dust or something lol, just looked at a picture at feathersite :http://www.feathersite.com/Poultry/CGA/Brahma/BRKBrahma.html
    on the light brahma picture the have of "Jeff Iurato's Light Brahma cock and hen" the cock looks to have some of the redish feathers on its lower chest.
