    Is my RIR a cockerel or hen?

    Here is some pics of my Rhode Island Red youngster. It’s going on 8 weeks old. This is our only RIR so I don’t have another one to compare him/her to. None of our other chicks, same age, have a comb like this yet so I think this one is a cockerel. Any one have a good guess?

    LF: Buff Orphingtons and Black Australorps (Connecticut)

    Hi everybody! I'm currently looking for my first chickens! I've got my heart set on some Buffs and some Australorps as their personality seems to fit what I'm looking for the best. They MUST be sexed. Zoning regulations prevents roosters in my town so they must be pullets. If anybody has any...
