    We ordered the ornamental layer collection and the assorted Heavy Rooster Collection from Mcmurry. The chicks will be 4 wks old Monday and there are three that I still can not figure out which collection they are from or what breed they could be.

    Here they are

    This one has the most feathers in, it is also the calmest if that means anything.

    This one has the least feathers in it looks so weird and all three are towering over the other chicks they look like godzilla chickens!

    Here is a pic of the third one leaning over the feed trough and the mostly feathered one squatting behind it. You can kind of see the size thing. The other chicks in the pic are EE's

    This is the last pic This one also has very little feathers in. It is much darker then the other two.

    Well What do you think? Do I need to move them to the rooster pen? What breed could they possibly be???

    I am soooo confused!!!
    Thanks in advance

    I would say those are light brahmas, which are a heavy breed and the one on the left side of pic#3 looks to be male.

    THank you that is what I was thinking Means I need to move them to the rooster pen because I don't think they where included in my ornamental layer collection and all 3 should be roosters.

    Maybe I'll keep one as a replacement rooster.

    Any Idea's why the one has so many more feathers then the other two???
