    Does anyone know what breed these four chicks are I got them from tractor supply a while ago and they were in the bantam tank. But I had hatched two chickens about a month or longer before I got them and these were a few days old when I got them and they are bigger than the ones I hatched so I was think maybe some kind of Cornish but as huge as there legs are and the size they are at there age I was also considering black jersey Giants but I don't think they are those. The two black ones are my main concern but I would also like to know what breed the other two are. Plus can anyone tell me the gender of them also I think they are all roosters but I just can't imagine them all roosters.[​IMG]

    Thanks all I know about them is they were in the mixed bantam tank wih the brown ones I am getting ready to get some pics of and they separated these ones because they kept dying but I got another one after the first one I had died, but the replacement one went and was happy and healthy. But anyways are you sure they are mixed breed coming from tractor supply?

    I wouldn't trust Tractor Supply to know what they are selling any more than a random person off the street would.




    Both of these are Production Red cockerels. So yes, all four roosters.
