    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!!!

    The black and white bird in the first pic is male. Everyone else looks female.

    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.

    Oh my goodness! I'm sorry to make a post that is of no help at all, but I LOVE your peafowl! Consider me jealous.
