    You've got a barred rock rooster, and two red hybrids (which are great egg layers), and then your third pic has two more roosters and a hen in the middle, all red hybrids.

    The hybrids are actually two different breeds. Like a RIR, plus a White Leghorn, for example. Those hens are great producers of a large, brown egg!

    You have a BR roo, two Red sex link roos, two red sex link pullets and it looks like a BO pullet and a BSL or BA pullet.

    Quote:Thank you, what is very weird is that the one rooster pictured above the white and brown one... he is the only one who is crowing right now... the other two... are not... why is that? They were all hatched at the same time.. I got them all from the preschool where my grandson attends.

    they were teaching the children about chickens and eggs... then they didn't have a home...so I adopted them...
