Hi! My name is Kristi and I am a new chicken mama. ;) Our family just got six straight-run buff orpingtons about a week ago. We are dying to know if we have roosters or hens (I am a little afraid we have mostly roosters, honestly). Looking forward to jumping in and getting to know everyone here! :)

Hi Kristi and - great to have you onboard with us! Not sure what age your chicks are, but if you post pics in the "what breed or gender is this" forum, peeps here will be able to tell you what you have.
These links may help at the moment
Nice to meet you Kristi - welcome to Backyard chickens. Straight runs, are usually a dumping ground for cockerels but, maybe they ran out of them and actually sent pullets. When they are 6 weeks old you can post photos at "what breed or gender is this."
Ugh, good to know! I think we have a solution to our problem. This gives me an excuse to get some sexed females. I think I'll be adding 3-4 pullets today. ;)
