    How old & what kind?

    Right off the bat I'd say the dark one on the left looks like a girl as well as the red one closest to camera. I'm not great at this so I'm not sure. I think the dark one on the right looks maybe roo-ish.

    4 are rir's and the 2 black ones are bantam's but I don't know what type of Bantams. They are about 61/2 weeks old. Thanks for the reply

    My best guess is that you have one of each in the bantams, but I think maybe just the one RIR hen. I'm no expert tho.

    Thanks, for your help. My wife is going to kill me. She didn't even want one rooster. Just the eggs. I thought the same I just needed a second opinion before I found them a home.
