    We're new to the backyard chicken world and picked up our first few chooks over the weekend! We were told they were all pullets, but they were from a feed store and I'm questioning the accuracy the more research I'm doing, They are still young, but I was wondering I could get some thoughts from those more experienced than myself?

    2 are RIR, 2 are Barred Rock(possibly Australorp cross?) and the last 2 little firecrackers are guinea fowl.The RIR are a little older than the others and I'm also wondering if I'm going to need to switch them to a separate bin before long? At this point they are all getting along fine and honestly, its the guineas that are the bossiest, despite being the smallest! Thank you in advance!

    edit:: and now I feel like a dummy for posting this in the wrong place ;-P Please disregard, re-posting in appropriate section.
