    So I was given 5 chicks from someone I know. I have 3 Rhode Island Reds which are great layers, but she gave us un-sexed Bantams. . . Any help appreciated... Hoping they are all hens (unlikely I know...) :/ But I live in the city and can not have Roos!

    I've had them 5 weeks now, and assume that is about how old they are.. (give or take a day or two!)

    This one is all black... I'm guessing a Black Australorp

    Possibly an Easter Egger (most likely wishful thinking)

    Orpington maybe? (likely a roo?)
