    Hello

    I am new to raising chickens and sure that I will have tons of questions. We have 4-8 week old Rhode Island Reds and 3-10 week old Ameraucanas. Our whole family is enjoying them. We got them for eggs and are hoping they are all girls, but one is a little questionable. Hope you all have a great day!![​IMG]

    Welcome to BYC! It's great to have you.

    The little fella in that photo is a Buff Orpington, and he is indeed a cockerel.

    Queen Misha is right, that is a buff orp. Maybe they mislead you on the other breeds you have. If you post photos here or at "what breed or gender is this," we can get things squared away for you.
