    Hey all,

    I got a straight run a few months ago and have had a lot of fun watching the chicks (my first) develop. They came from a group of Wyandotte, Easter Eggers and Marans and I am pretty sure these are not Marans. :)

    So the big question is....which breed? And I am pretty sure all of these are roos (out of a group of 8 total, the others are easily identified). Please tell me what you think. We have a maran rooster that we are keeping and if these 4 are boys also, it is sad but they need to go.


    Thanks!

    My guess is....top pic and bottom pic look like Easter eggers. The middle two might be Blue Laced Red Wyandottes. All four roosters.

    All EE roos. Wyandottes wouldn't have beards/muffs and would have rose combs vs pea combs.

    Thanks PG Ranch! I really like him and the other one similar colored. We are in the middle of nowhere and none of them crow or are aggressive, we may just have to keep a couple of roos for their looks. The Maran is the obnoxious crower...... :)

    Thank you all really for your help. Now to decide what to do with these guys. There is a poultry swap coming up, but I get the feeling I am not the only one with extra roos to deal with. I hate the thought of eating any of them, but it is an option. Ugh! I should have gotten grown up hens, but then I would have missed out on them growing up.
