    They are 4 weeks old and I don't know what kind they are. And I think they are roo's but not sure. I also have some chicken's with greenish legs, one is white and the others are barred rocks. Do leg color mean anything? like egg color?

    Did you happen to get them as packaging peanuts from Ideal Hatchery? Seriously, I have 5 little boys who are identical to the pictures you posted! I have no idea what they are either. I'd love to find out myself.... My Barred Rocks have darker legs, but I was told they are brown egg layers. I know my EEs are green egg layers, but I'm unsure how green their legs are...

    They all look like they might be roos. As for breed....I would say that you will have too wait until they start to get their adult feathers. Because it looks like they were originally white (and/or yellow) fluff, and now have different colors.

    They were yellow and one was a dirty light yellow when they were little and came from Meyer Hatchery that was @ a sale barn. They are just for meat and eggs.

    How old are they when they get there adult feathers in?

    Depends on the chicken, but I normally see little change in my chickens after they reach about 4months old.

    I just glanced through Meyer Hatchery website and think that the best match at this time would be the Golden Buff. More than likely cockerels. But that is not to say what they are.
