Hello! I've been reading these forums for weeks now. We got a batch of day old chicks just before Easter, another batch a few weeks later, then another after that. I so wish we had more room! I already want more We got them from the farm store of course. Supposed to have all pullets As you'll see our "rainbow layer" Larry is all roo! Didn't think I wanted a roo, but after reading around here I thought YES I think I do. My daughters still chase him and carry him around. Guess that should stop soon as I don't want them to get hurt. He is very mild mannered right now. The problem is I think I heard another crow today. Could't see who did it. It's been so hot they like hiding in the bushes and shrubs. I free range from sun up to sun down. So far so good. However, i don't think I should have more than one roo, and I probably have more than two! I didn't know the banty chicks were straight run, I swear it said pullets Then I read somewhere banty chicks are too small to be sexed? I have 13 alltoghether. I've never had chickens before and I really need some help figuring out what I can keep and what I can't. I have 1 coop so there won't be any separating for a while. I'm pretty sure I should only keep one roo. I am amazed at how you all can tell things from pictures posted. I don't seem to be any wiser after reading. And I do have some experiece showing and raising other animals.....it's confusing to me to look at some pullets that look like roos with the big combs and wattels. Hope I'll learn something eventually! I've seen many of you with such beautiful purebred chickens I almost feel silly posting my farm store bunch! I love these icons Here they are: #1 My pride and joy: Larry, my rainbow layer #2 Silkie Bantum? Don't know how his head gets dirty BO Please be pullets #3 #4 I have no idea what kind these two are? Bantums though. #5 #6 Supposed to be Ameraucanas but I know they are not from the pictures I've seen here. #7 #8 Not sure what this is? #9 BR's i think . Hope all are pullets! #10 #11 #12 Thank you all in advance!
