Breed & sex of chickens?

Discussion in 'What Breed Or Gender is This?' started by felicityh, May 31, 2016.

  1. Hi guys, I'm a first time owner of chickens having only recently moved to the mountains (in Australia). My husband brought these three chickens home to add to our silkies... But I have no idea what breed or whether they're hens or roosters! Can anyone help? Cheers! Felicity

  3. Thanks so much! We suspected the first one was a rooster... He's super cheeky! And the third chicken is just the sweetest little girl:)
