    I am a first time chicken owner and can't figure out the sex of my 4 [​IMG]chickens. The seller said they are rhode island reds mixed with americana. They are now approximately 11 weeks old.

    Goodness -- looks like you've won the cockerel lottery with that lot, so sorry. The only one I would hold out ANY hope for would be the one in the very front, but even that would be highly unlikely. I would also question the supposed breeding mix given none are showing any characteristics of having Ameraucana in their breeding.

    Thankyou for the welcome. Here is a closer look at the possible hen. Still possible? What breed would you guess?[​IMG]

    Hi and Welcome to BYC! Thanks for joining us [​IMG]

    At 11 weeks old, i think all are cockerels, i see cockerel feathers coming in on the possible hen..The one on the far right looks pullet like, but then again i see cockerel plumage..

    nothing like the suprise of your daughter getting 2 chicks for her bday, buying them friends, a big coop, run, etc just to find out you can't keep any of them.
