New to raising chickens and still need lots of help. Could anyone tell me what breeds these are? We were told the black and white ones were Wyandottes and the red ones are rhode Island reds. And is the one in front a hen or a rooster? They've all been healthy and some or all are laying, but next time we will definitely research our purchase a lot more!!! The whiter one flattens out its wings and sticks its rear in the air like a hen but looks more like rooster. Haven't heard any crowing though. Not aggressive to us or other chickens either. Thanks for your help!!
