please help my identify my chicks

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 

On June 6th my cousin came to my house with 4 green/brown eggs and only two survived but I have no idea what sex or breed they are. My cousin found these eggs in him moms yard while mowing her grass and came a cross these eggs. We are very new at raising chickens and we live in the city limits where we can not have roasters. so far these babies are about 21 weeks old and have not laid any eggs yet. Is there any way some one can help my identify them and maybe tell me some facts as to when they might lay some eggs.

They appear to be Easter eggers. The black and white is a cockerel and the red one is a pullet.

The bigger bird with black is a male, the little brown bird is female. They're Easter eggers or mixed breed birds.

Agreed

Breeder of Dutch bantams, Wyandotte bantams, and a few exhibition rabbits.

Feel free to ask me questions about chicken and rabbit care, breeds, and showing! I'm always happy to help!

It varies depending on the individual. I have had roosters start crowing as early as 2-3 weeks old and as late as 7-8 months old. Most start crowing around 4-5 months old though.
