    Thanks!!!![​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]



    This is my first time raising chickens and I went to a feed store and got the following
    Black one is a Silkie
    Brown one's are Production red's
    White one I was told was a barred rock but dosent look anything like pictures I have seen online

    I knew the Silkie was straight run but the others were sexed. I am now starting to worry that one of the Producton red's is a roo. I purchased them all at the same time and their comb's were the same until the one took off. I am in the city and not allowed to have roosters. Now I am starting to worry that half of my chickens are going to turn out to be roo's!!! Is the Production Red and Silkie a roo or hen and any idea on the breed of the with one. They are around three months old.

    Thanks!!!!

    The only cockerel I see right now would be the production red with the bigger comb. The white pullet looks like either a White Leghorn or a White Rock, I full body photo would help confirm one or the other.

    That's a young White Plymouth Rock -- same breed as the Barred Rock but white in color. Maybe about 4 weeks old? Soon its face and comb will become more red.
