    Picked up these girls for free off of CL [​IMG] and the owner said they came out of the same "litter"? They're not laying yet.

    Quote:The first one are you sure is a girl? I almost think I see saddle feathers in its second photo.

    They may all be crosses of some kind. The white/black barred cross in the first pic looks like a rooster.

    I hope it's not a roo, means I'd have to get rid of him. There was a roo I rehomed that came with them born the same time and 2x the size.

    Thanks everyone, guess I'll find out tomorrow if it's a roo [​IMG]

    Here is the pic I took of them in the car, the roo is in the middle. I rehomed him, the lady said the rest were female.

    Those are Buff Orpington/Barred Rock crosses! They're colored just like the ones I hatched last year. Here's some pics of the hens (they just like Mei!):

    I didn't get any pics of the roosters, but they looked just like Sasuki (and yes, Sasuki is a rooster, sorry).

    A Buff Orpington rooster crossed with Barred Rock hens makes Sexlinks, which can be sexed by color. Males are barred and females are the buff/black color.

    The little red pullet is not a Buff Orpington x Barred Rock. Got any better pics of her? (only if you want us to try and identify her)
