    Good morning,

    I just joined the site after being up last night reading for hours! My husband took the kids 5 weeks ago to a feed store and brought home 4 chickens. He was told they were pullet and that means girls. We do not know what breed they even are.The Black one is older and left from another hatch. I think we may have 2 boys? I know nothing about chickens and am told by neighbors I am so city. We have recently moved from the northeast to the deep south. Lots of changes any help would be appreciated.

    They all look like girls to me! The first 1 looks like a Barred Rock, the second 1 looks like a dark Brahama, and the 3rd one I'm not sure about.

    I agree!! Third one looks like my buff orps with that fuzzy butt, but I'm by no means an expert.

    Could #1 be a Cuckoo Maran? I am asking because I have one that looks like #1.

    Thank you everyone.
    3 are about 5-6 weeks and the black one we were told was from an earlier hatch. I would say about 2 weeks older from watching them grow BUT I know nothing about chickens- I say that because 2 weeks after we got them the others were the size of the black one when we got her(hopefully)

    the first one is not a Cuckoo Marans. They have white/pink legs. Barred Rocks have yellow legs, and what you have is a Barred Rock. The other are Buff Orpington and Dark Brahma.

    If the buff one has yellow legs it could be a Buff Rock.
