    Hi everyone!

    Please could you have a look at my photos and let me know if you think my new babies are hens or roos? I'm a relatively new crazy chook lady! :)

    Thanks

    G’Day from down under mon2405 [​IMG] Welcome!

    I would take a guess at the gender of your hens but it would be just that, a guess; I have enough trouble with my own half of the time [​IMG]

    As CTKen suggests, try the 'What Breed or Gender' forum where they are lots of experienced people able to assist.

    I hope you enjoy BYC; not only is it overflowing with lots of useful information it is also a great place to make friends and have some fun. Unlike non chicken loving friends, family and colleagues, BYC’ers never tire of stories or pictures about chickens, turkeys, duck, quail, Peas and pretty much any other feathered and non feathered friends [​IMG]

    Welcome to Backyard chickens. I would have taken a stab at IDing them but, the photos are too dark. Very little contrast between bird & background. If you could take new ones in natural lighting it should be a lot better to work with. The " what breed or gender is this," folks are very good but they can only work with what they see in photos.

    CTKen has given you a good link for gender identification and drumstick diva makes a good point about the photos.

    Good luck with your flock!
