We are new to this site and 5 months into chicken raising, and we LOVE It!!!! What we are stumped with is whether our little ones are roo's or girls?? The top pic is of 3 of our cuties, the one of the left is Peep, the middle is Rose (or Ricky :)), and the one of the far right is our cute Bootsie!
The second pic is of a Peahen/peacock that appeared one day next to our chickens (which will be a whole other question sometime ) but does anyone know the sex and if he/she is young or mature??
Third pic is our Polish, and again not sure if it is she or he.....the fourth down is Molly, who we 'think' is a she.....and the fifth is Speck, who we are wondering about as well ;-)
We would really appreciate any input from those of you who are more experienced in this realm of the chicken world!!!

In this photo, I see three pullets and a rooster. I'm not sure if you know their breeds, so I'll give you my opinion on the breeds. The one on the left is a Buff Orpington, the one one the far right is a Buff Cochin, and the two other birds look like Easter Eggers.

Sorry I can't help! If I was to make a guess, I'd say that "it" is a she, though.

White Crested Black Polish pullet.

Black Australorp, Black Orpington, Black Jersey Giant, or Black Java pullet. If she has yellow bottoms to her feet, she's a Jersey Giant or Java. If they are white, she's an Australorp or Orpington.

Easter Egger pullet. Very pretty!

I agree with BantamLover21 on the chickens.

You have yourself a Peafowl (I would guess a hen). She's one of the more unusual colors, such as a Bronze, Buford, or Peach. I am no expert on Peafowl, so you might want to post in their forum and ask for clarification. It's a shame you don't have a male (peacock), to pair with her, because they are easier to ID color on.
