    I hatched these 6 weeks ago.

    They were in a coop with 4 RIR hens, 2 EE hens and 1 RIR roo...

    I origionally had 12 chicks but a coon broke into my brooder and ripped a couple heads off and a hawk took a couple when they were ranging peacefully for about 20 minutes on a nice sunny day...

    So I'm not sure if they are all RIR's or if there may be an EE cross in the mix.

    Also, I can't tell if they're girls or boys...

    Help anyone?!? [​IMG]

    I see what I believe to be 2 roos - one to the far right and the one dead center.

    3..possibly 4 roos. I think they are RIR, but one could be an EE.

    It would be easier to tell with individual pictures but based on these pics... I see at least 2 roos possibly as many as 4. The little one with a lot of brown in the wings, over the back, and in the tail I would guess is an EE cross. Individual side on pics of each would make it a whole lot easier to get more specific.

    The 3 highlighted ones look like cockerels. The others are pullets.
