    What color are their legs? If yellow then Columbian Rocks, if white then White Sussex. They could also be Delawares.

    And all 4 of them look to be roosters.

    I wouldn't jump to Cockeral just yet. I've bought pullets at a very young age and as they grew they developed bright red combs like the ones in the picture. Luckily they laid eggs....

    They look like mini versions of my Light Sussex hens.

    Wow. Yes I do mean Light Sussex >.< Feeling like a bit of an idiot now.

    In my defence, my brain is working very well right now, I just spent 5 hours writing a politics and law essay :p
