    I bought these chickens as hatchlings and requested only hens. I have 2 of each breed: white leghorns, RIR, GLW, SLW, 1 EE, and 2 "extras" they sent.. I am unsure of what breed the extras are and the gender. I know I have 1 rooster and I have an idea of which it is but would deinfitely like another opinion. I am a first time chicken owner and very curious as to the breeds and gender. Thank you so much!

    Hairy foot....Light Brahma, roo or silver penciled cochin...I can't tell but roo none the less

    Golden Laced....roo

    White one????

    2nd...roo...looks like EE

    Last EE...looks like a pullet.

    I'm not an expert by no means but the hackle feathers really look rooish on all but maybe the first and last....

    1. White leghorn Hen (I believe)
    2. Easter Egger Roo
    3. ? Roo
    4. Wyandotte or Wyandotte mix? Roo
    5. EE Hen

    Not good with identifying breeds, I'll admit.

    Thank you all!! Now for another question, can I have 3 roosters (2 of which we supposedly sexed as hens?!) with out fighting?? My purpose for chickens is to eat the eggs, not to have baby chicks [​IMG] Its not a terrible thing to have a rooster with my hens right?

    You can have 3 roosters if you get them each at least 4 hens. You should not have 3 roos with only 2 hens.

    3 roosters covering 2 hens will get ugly, both for the hens and between the roosters. I have two roosters covering 17 hens and there are still some rooster quarrels in the yard.
