    Hello

    We started raising chickens this year for eggs and are very much enjoying them. Hoping we have all hens, but one is a little questionable. I took a few pictures. Please help and let me know your thoughts. This is an 8 week old Rhode Island Red.

    Thanks!![​IMG]

    i think it's definately a buff orpington. got good signs of a roo. if it's feet start getting a lot bigger than the other hens that's a good sign of rooster too.

    Agree that's a cute buff Orpington cockerel.

    Everyone else that I can see looks female. I see some Easter eggers and Wyandottes, all looking feminine.
