    Yes, I need help on name that breed and is that a rooster. Lol. I have 8 young pullets, I think they are all female. But on has me going hmm.... Maybe not you. So let me post some pictures and help me try to figure this out.
    The first 2 are my most in question. I thought they where red leghorns but I was informed that they are production reds.

    So do we male/female or both female. I'm mostly questioning the right one. There are no spurs on the feet. But please feedback is needed.

    I have no idea what kind is this lady. She has a twin.

    This was one of your first ladies we received. Again no idea I'm guessing Golden Sex Link.

    The first two are production red roosters. Roosters don't get spurs until they are about a year old... give or take. Also, both hens and roosters have spur buds, so you can't really depend on that to tell if you have rooster or hen chicks.

    The other three are hens. The first looks like a Black Sexlink, second is a Golden Comet, and third looks like a New Hampshire Red or a production red.

    Both are male production Reds. The hackle and saddle feathers will come to a point as opposed to being well-rounded.

    Could the pullet in the second pic be an Easter Egger? I have one that has identical feather patterns and the color looks the same. The comb might be wrong though.

    I'd be exited if it's an Easter egger. As for the the Roosters I found them a home no a nice large horse farm 2 counties over. I'm sure they are very happy making a ruckus since they won't be the loudest. Lol.
