I have come to the conclusion I am completely clueless... We originally got 6 chicks from the farmers market, 5 RIR chicks and one Buff Orp. Out of the 5 RIR three are FOR SURE cockerels....They have had red combs from like 5 weeks on and these combs are now as big as my laying red stars at 11 weeks. .. Since we got these guys we also took in 3 more completely mystery birds from a backyard flock gone crazy... The woman had over 100 birds in a small lot to the point they were running out in the road.... Thankfully they have seemed to be relatively healthy (little whites legs look rough in this pic, but they aren't scaley, he just REALLY likes to walk through mud and dog poo) and are now safely cooped with the others where they stay separate but for the most part get along fine. I know in the original flock she said she at one point had RIRs, Buff Orphington, Speckled Sussex, Leghorns, australorps, easter eggers, and who knows what else. I think I saw some gold laced birds as well. They were all allowed to run willy nilly so these babies could be ANYTHING! This is Big white on the left and Little Red. I don't know how old they are, but they are somewhere between my 11 week olds and my just now laying 20 odd weekers. Big white I think is leghorn of some sort, but not being familiar with them I don't know if the iridescent yellowy pearly creamy color on her feathers is normal or came from being with something else. I think She is a pullet, but I am not certain. Little red looks very much like my golden comets, but with white legs... She/He has very red comb and wattles, but her face looks more feminine than my confirmed roo RIRs. I am about to try to rehome some roos because I can't eat the ones I've had from babies and if she/he is a roo I want to go ahead and let him go too. Little white is about in the lower middle of my original 6 in size, so I imagine it is around 11 weeks or so too. I am leaning towards pullet but really have no clue and am completely blank on breed (prolly like 4th generation mutt). This is Pat our 11 week gender ambiguous buff orp from the original 6. When it was tiny I was CONVINCED it was a roo, but as it grew up its comb stayed small like our almost positive girl RIR. It It one of the first to puff up and run at other birds, but also lets chicken little sleep under its wing... I think it may just be confused. This is Chicken Little, He/She is less than half the size of the other 4 original RIRs at 11 weeks... He is also REALLY behind on feathering and the ones he does have are really weird and like stringy. He has a whole 3 tail feathers, but they are crescent shaped. I couldn't get any pictures where its tail showed. It is very hard to get a picture of him/her because it zips around pretty quickly and is definitely alert and active so I have no clue how to explain the size/ feathering difference.
