    They look to be mixed breeds. The one to the right is a rooster.

    I agree that they look like mixed breeds, and also that the red one with the huge comb and wattles is a male

    Hatchery birds or from a breeder? I agree with the others that one on the right is a cockerel for sure.

    Thanks everyone. We kept the brown one hoping it to be a female but the last few days the tail is growing and it is becoming "bossy" trying to keep the other two inside the coop. We have a person that could take him for her flock. Momma Debby

    We ordered fertile eggs and incubated them.

    We got ferile eggs from a "barnyard mix" online and incubated. The website listed Barred Rock, Buff Orphington, RIRed, Australorp, and other well-known breeds. Not what we got but its ok. I wish we could keep Biddy aka Buddy but we live in city limits.

    They are very good looking chickens. It's really too bad you can't have cockerels though. :hmm

    Thank you. They are 10 weeks old and just like that he became bossy and showing his muscle to the other two. I was hoping for a girl but...today he started a sound that is the first half of a crow sound.

    Yes, and we live in a gated community. I am pushing my luck already!
