    My chickens are about 6 months old. They are not laying yet. I bought the chickens at 3 months old and thought I was purchasing hens only. The white one is now crowing every morning. I'm also wondering what breeds. I'm new to Raising chickens and this is my first post. Thank you.[​IMG]

    Looks like a cockerel, but the pictures are so blurry I can't tell for sure.

    And on the breed, they look like Rhode Island Red or Production Red pullets, the cockerel looks like some sort of game mix.

    The "white" one looks like a White Laced Red Cornish to me. Can we get a closer, clear, broadside pic of it?

    I hope these shots are helpful when determining if it's a Rooster or a Hen. This chicken is almost 6 months old. I'm also wondering which breed. Thanks again and appreciate any input.
