First time chicken owner, long time duck owner

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

My 5th grade students and I hatched 9 chickens last week! Completely unsure on breed and gender, as I am used to my 4 ducks at home that I specifically ordered a particular breed and gender. 

 

This yellow one hatched one week ago yesterday. The black one hatched a week ago tomorrow. Any ideas on gender and breed?

One of our school's bus drivers. Sounds like he has a mixture himself, so I am not sure the breeds the eggs came from. 

 

I'm more curious about gender on the two I pictured. Fingers crossed for hens because those two I planned on keeping!
