    hard to tell without seeing a standing side view to be able to examine their "Type", body shape, leg color, etc.. But the bottom is a game, Be it OEG or american i don't know but she resembles a American brownred more then the OEG's.. blue im not sure on, neither the other

    When I got them I was told that the top Red one was the mother hen and the rest were her chicks. It is apparent they don't all look alike I have 4 of the Black/red 1 blue one 1 red one and the red hen.

    I say the first one is a New Hampshire red. Most all the production reds I have seen have lots of white under feathers. [​IMG] She looks like my Bessy. [​IMG]

    O.K. call me stoopid [​IMG] there is a lot more to this than I thought. I just went out to check once again the sexes of my bunch. I always just guessed the two with the larger combs were roos. This time I looked at the feet and saw only 1 with spurs. So I take that is my only Rooster. That also is the one that I thought was the broody hen:/.He never seems to leave the laying box but when I move him to get at the eggs. So what do I have here a broody Roo? Do roo's sit on eggs? Now that I left some eggs in to hatch there is also a hen in there with him.

    Quote:Can you post pictures of your possible roos? I've never heard of a rooster that sits on eggs - maybe they are all hens.

    Unless it's a silkie, it's probably not a roo. [​IMG] Silkie roos WILL sit on eggs, funniest thing ever. They'll baby sit chicks too.
    He might be hurt, or he might be low on the pecking order. If so, there just happen to be eggs there.
    1)production red
    2)blue game type, not sure american or OEG.
    3)bottom right: black breasted red female game, middle brown red female game.
    roo pics?
