Hen or Rooster?

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Hi, I'm new to raising chickens and was given 4 chicks from a family friend and I'm unsure on the sex/breed of them so im hoping if I post pics someone will be able to help me out and also the lady that had the chickens before me dyed them all different colors :-/ but almost all of the color has faded except for their heads.

I see one-possibly two cockerels. I was thinking Leghorn off the bat, but do they have black spots? I thought I saw some on the one hen's back.

Maybe more like 7-8 weeks. Theone could be a Delaware, but I'm probably wrong...

Thats what I was worried about, thinking i need to go get some more pullets, should I keep all 3 roosters or will they fight?

If they grew up together chances are they will get along. Although 1 rooster would need around 4 hens each, otherwise the hens will be annoyed.

 

3 roosters with only 1 hen is way too much and not recommended.

I would visit your local farm store or order chicks on line for all those fellas! They little girl will REALLY be annoyed, and featherless wink.png

I have a wonderful loving family, so that means my chickens get alot of love from us-well from me & my son mostly, but I like to pretend my husband loves it too! 1 collie dog,3 cats, 4 Leghorns, 1 OEGB rooster, 7-Gold Comets,2 Dekalb Amberlinks, 2 Buff Brahma's, 1 Light Brahma's, 4 Naked Necks, 2 Col. Rock Cross, 1 Silver Laced Wyandotte hens, 2 Silikes, and more breeds on the way! .
