    We have adopted 5 chickens from someone whose landlord didn't allow them. They were all bought from a pet store and she told us they are about a year old which I find hard to believe, unless they are bantams, because we have bigger chickens just over 8 months old.
    2 are RIR and look like cockerels, the other 3 are gorgeous and I need help to pinpoint their breed. Thanks for your feedback

    They look like Polish mixes to me. The one on the left is a cockerel. The one on the right may be a cockerel because I think I may see sadfle feathers, but the pic won't blow up enough on my phone.

    Likely mixes of mixes. I see traits of several different breeds. The dark one is definently a male, the other looks like a female to me. They're not over a year old, I'd say 6-8 months at most in age. The female almost has a lavender tint to her, she is very pretty.

    Yes she is very lavender up close,
    might call her lily (lilac) :)
    Have tried to attach more pics but they disappear :(
