Hi, I'm new here... Could someone please tell me the breed and gender of our 4 chickens... Approx 18 weeks old.

They all look like roosters, though,  I'd like to see a different picture of the black bird standing to be sure.

In the first picture both are roosters. In the second picture the one taking a dust bath seems so have rounded saddle feathers so looks like a hen to me.

17 pigeons, 15 coturnix quail, 2 roos, 6 hens. Also 5 drakes, a CCL roo that thinks he's a drake, a fat bearded dragon and 2 angora rabbits.

 

Current projects are Cinnamon Legbars (chocolate gold), chocolate/brown pigeons and silver/brown coturnix quail. My next project is a dark chocolate colored chicken with deep red/gold base that lays bright green eggs. Yes, I like the color brown.

The white one is a cockerel, probably a White Plymouth Rock. The other one may be a pullet, but I'm not sure about "her" breed.

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!

Nature's first green is gold,

Her hardest hue to hold.

Her early leaf's a flower

But only so an hour.

Then leaf subsides to leaf.

So Eden sank to grief,

So dawn goes down to day.

Nothing gold can stay. --Robert Frost

The black one looks like a Dominique-based Black Sexlink.

The pea comb on the second one makes me think Easter Egger.  I think its a pullet.
