    Hi everyone! I am a first time poster; but, I joined several months ago! I have enjoyed reading posts and getting to see how everyone else raises their chickens. I bought 15 chicks in May and I still am not sure what most of them are. I'm hoping someone here can tell me. I only have 11 of the chicks left as one of my rat terriers killed 4 of them in the past month! [​IMG] So, I gave her to a friend who doesn't have chickens and we're all happier. So, what do you think of my girls? I suspect 2 are roos even tho I ordered all pullets. I got them from Ideal.

    Hi and Welcome to BYC and congrats on your first post.

    The first one has gotta be a Roo, so is the SS Hamburg in the second and third pictures.

    The rest look like pullets.

    Oh dear! I was afraid I had 3 roos! Maybe Ideal will give me credits for them? I probably will keep the buff roo since I have 3 pullets just like him. I have one that looks just like this buff; but, she has a lot of white on her wings and back. Can that be the same or do I need to post a pic of her too? The SS Hamburg that is a roo was one of the ones that my dog killed. He was so pretty........

    Thanks for your help!
