    Ross Ranch dilemma... We bought 4 chicks in April. We have determined 1/4 is definitely a rooster. We are unsure about the rest. Please help!

    Pretty sure (Button) she is a hen... what breed? We thought she would be a Light Brahma? Perhaps she was mistaken? She was in a bin with Araucanas.

    We are unsure about Abby?

    We are certain Apple is a rooster...

    Both roos
     
  3. Button and Apple are both Easter Eggers - they come in many colors, but all have muffs, beard, and greenish (willow) legs.

    I have no idea what kind of bird abby might be - but she sure is neat looking with that poof on top!

    There EEs, button is a girl, apple is a boy and abby looks to be a boy but could still be a girl. How old are they? your button looks like my moonlight[​IMG]and your apple looks like my cocoa[​IMG]

    8 wks [​IMG] Thank you all for your opinions! We are new to the rooster scene. We unfortunately will be moving out of our home in the country to live in a neighborhood in a couple of months and will have to rehome our handsome roos. We also have a Serama, Silky mix that we are also trying to place. He is really beautiful. Maybe we will have some luck placing all of them at the Chicken Stock?

    They all look to be Easter Eggers. Button is a nice white pullet (light Brahma would have feathered legs and black in the neck, wings, and tail). Abby is a roo as is Apple. Good luck with the move.
