    Hey everyone! Been a while since I've been back to BYCF. Hope you're all doing well! I'm going to post a few pictures of my chickens hoping that someone can give me some insight on whether or not I have here. I'm guessing two roosters and two hens but not sure. My guess is that the two RIR's on the " bed" are the roosters and the two pictures that follow are the hens? Any help is appreciated.

    I think you have ALL hens.
     
  7. I say either 1 cockeral or all pullets...

    One is blurry in the first picture...Thats the only one I'm not really sure of...but I think they are all girls....Heres a pic of a mature hen.... I see no pointed roo saddles starting, nor the really large upright comb I associate with RIR roos...Nor the green tails coming in....

    The BO I'm sure is a pullet

    Depends on how old they are though....Heres a mature RIR hen...

    I would hope they are all hens. That would mean I can keep all of them! [​IMG] Two of the RIR's are 22 weeks old, the BO and other RIR are around 20 weeks. I think I have another pic where the combs are a bit clearer. I'll look.
