    I'm new to this forum but not to chickens. I have some new breeds I've not had before. We currently have 16 total! 5 leghorns, 4 red sex links, 3 barred rocks, two buff Orpingtons, two gold stars, and one porcelain bantam. All pullets fingers crossed. We recently have had suspicion of two barred rocks being roosters. [​IMG]

    What do you guys think?

    Hi :welcome

    Glad you could join the flock! That's a lovely mixed flock you have there :clap If you could get some pics without the light in them you could post in the what breed gender section. Here is the link ~ https://www.backyardchickens.com/f/15/what-breed-or-gender-is-this
    I'm sure members there will be able to help you.

    Good luck and enjoy BYC :frow

    I'm also in Oklahoma, just joined today. I am very new to keeping chickens, though. Just got my chicks a week ago. 6 Buff Orpington and 4 Silver Laced Wyandotte pullet chicks. At least I hope they're all pullets... Lol!

    The chick dead center first photo - looks like a cockerel, he was wide bands of white, and grayish looking bars, and yellow feet. All signs of a male BR. Females generally have narrow bands of white & blackish bars . They also have a dark wash over their legs. It would help to have pictures without the red lamp. But, I just about certain the middle one is male. How old are they?
