    So hi first time posting here but read a lot in the past

    My wife and I just bought a farm and i went to the auction out of curiosity and i ended up buying 8 chicks that are growing up fast

    People at the auction didnt know what breed they were and someone told me they might be brhama but we dont know

    Ive attached a picture and if anyone would know it would be of great service and I would be very greatfull

    Thank you very much[​IMG]

    I believe you have mottled houdans. How many toes do they have on each foot?

    Yep, mottled Houdans. We can see the 5th toe on a few of them, and I see at least one cockerel. They're going to be very striking when grown!

    We beleive we have 2 rooster and 6 hens which is great considering i didnt see them before buying

    Im also thinking of selling the extra rooster at the auction in the fall to pay for the whole flock last time we were there one pheasant sold for 140$ just because it was nice looking
