    Hello everyone.[​IMG] I have three 4 - 5 month old RiR x Maran chickens. I'm sure that one is a hen, but the other two are confusing me, especially because these are my first chickens, so I don't exactly know what I'm supposed to be looking for other than eggs, and crowing, which neither has happened so far.[​IMG] All three are siblings so, I'll put pics of all them just for comparison.

    Thanks in advance to the BYC community for helping out a newbie like me.

    This is the hen.

    Now the first and largest sibling. (playing with my dog's ball, lol)

    And the last one. (this is the one I'm most worried about.)

    Again thanks for all the help.

    I re-read and I think you have at least 2 roosters, and the first is debatable. One roo will dominate over all the others. it will look and be more aggressive from the beginning. The other roos will not develop as fast.

    So, I think the last one is an obvious roo, but the middle one looks iffy to me. Does anyone besides me think it could be a pullet?
