    Hello,

    My husband has hatched chickens for the first time 6-7 weeks ago. We have a mixture of wheaten maran (x2), Dutch bantam (x2), English game fowl (x2) and one unknown (the biggest one, from an egg from a farm).

    I think we have 4 males and 3 females, but we are not certain! Any ideas would be great!

    I think you are correct, so far. Hopefully none of the others are late bloomers!

    Yes. #2 has a bit of comb development but its not huge and its not red so I would not be too alarmed. #7 is looking a bit pink in the comb but again, there is not enough development to say it is male. I have had females that look like each of them.

    Hi. Love this! New to raising chicks! Went to TSC! So.... I think RIR & Plymouth Rocks. Can anyone help on if they are hens or Roos? Is it better to order chicks? I am so nervous that I may have a lot of Roos! [​IMG]
