    Hello!

    My husband and I got these chicks from a local school and they didn't seem to know what breed they had and my husband and I are new to chickens so we aren't sure either. We aren't exactly sure about sex either. Could we please get some help? I know we have at least one rooster because I can hear him in the morning but when I get to the coop he stops! haha I tried to number them to help. This is the best picture I could get, oddly enough they didn't seem to want to hold still to get their picture taken. [​IMG]

    Thanks!

    6,5,4 are Roos. 2 might be a Roo and 1 and 3 are hens and they look liked mixed breeds.

    Mixes. 4, 5 and 6 are cockerels. 1 and 3 are pullets. Need a better pic to ID 2. How old are they?

    I'm pretty proud of my husband and I.......we thought those 3 were roosters and then the other 2 were hens. #2 (if it's a hen that's so going to be her name now haha) is one that we had no idea about either. Here are two more pictures, I think I labeled everyone else correctly too.

    I agree that 4 5 6 are cockerels and 1 and 2 pullets. #2 is looking a bit cockerely (just made up that word [​IMG]) to me
