    Hi All,
    I am a new chicken owner.[​IMG] Oddly enough never liked any type of birds at all. Bad experience as a child with a Goose LOL!! Then a woman down the road convinced me it would be a great learning experience for my kids if i Incubated some eggs and hatched them!! So I agreed to and she agreed to take the chicks when they were born. But, when they hatched she refused she told me 4 chicks were not worth her time and I should take them into the woods and let nature take its course (let the coyotes eat them). [​IMG] Well needless to say there was NO WAY I was gonna do that so I became a chicken momma lol......Now my little ones are 9 weeks old. And I've grown to adore them......My question is breed and sex? Here are some pics. I think I have an idea myself interested in anyones input.[​IMG]

    The last one is probably a roo, and the others, hens. He's a Presley... Look at his comb...

    PS.- Interesting story!! That lady, though....[​IMG]
