    These were our first chicken that were given to use from a friend when they didn't want to take care of them anymore. They never told us what breeds they were or how old they were so the age is a guess for me. The black ones are two roos and the brown ones were two hens.
    Here they are when we first got them after a bath (4 weeks old):

    About 7 weeks old:

    Then the two roos at about 4 months old:

    thanks everyone, I was thinking red sex links after doing some research. The black roos are the ones that had me stumbed since I am still new to the chicken seen.

    barred-rocks-rock~ the black ones are defiantly roos, they started crowing at 3 months old and mastered it at 4 months old. Thats why we don't have them anymore.
