    I found them for free on a facebook group. I just wanted know what they are. She says their 18-20 weeks and do not crow. Only 1 of them do.

    That is what I was thinking of sex. I thought the one in the front on second photo pullet and the one on the right. But not sure on breed.

    The one in front is a pullet but I would need a better pic of the one on right to be sure. Others may chime in and being able to tell.

    The second picture looks like two red roosters--hatchery Rhode Island/production red/cherry egger-- and a red sex link hen. Pending better pictures.

    I will be heading to pick them up in the tomorrow night and will grab better photos then. I have 5 hens now and want to add a few more. I read that 1 rooster per 6 to 8 hens is good. And their free and can always rehome them if they all turn out to be roos.

    1st pic is of a Rhode Island Red/Production Red cockerel. The 2nd pic is of Rhode Island Red/Production Red cockerels (top left & right) and a Red Sex-Link hen (bottom).
