    Hey Ya'll!

    I've had my little herd of chickens for 5 months now. I got them when they were day old chicks from my friend who has bred chickens for years. I currently have 6 roosters and 5 hens(getting rid of all roosters but 2).

    Anyways, on with the question..
    I'm still not 100% sure what breed these 4 roos are, the other two not listed on here is a Blue Orpington and Black Ameraucana rooster.

    I'll put their names with the pictures..

    Checkers.

    All four appear to be mixed breeds, probably Easter Eggers. Very handsome boys!

    Agree, all have Easter egger characteristics. The first guy also had a barred parent, the others, well, who knows. If you're advertising them for sale, just call them Easter eggers.

    Thanks for the replies given! Really appreciate it!

    Any idea of a price range I should put them up for? I'm going to be selling them. I have no idea what I would sell each rooster for.

    Just depends on your area. I'd check your local craigslist, etc and see what roosters are going for.

    Around here, you have to give roosters away unless they're something special.
