    Hi there! I am new to chickens! I bought 5 hens about 4 weeks ago. I am starting to think that my grey girl is not so much a female as she is male. She sure likes to make lots of noise and seems to be an outcast and moody. This isn't the greatest picture and I can get another one tomorrow if need be! Any help would be appreciated!!

    I also bought 2 baby chicks from a feed store and the gentlemen told me he wasnt sure of gender or breed. Does anyone have an idea?!

    your chicks are rhode island reds. Your grey is actually blue and definitely a cockerel.

    Edited for the fact I have no clue how old the blue is? Age factor a lot of this.

    Got on the computer so I could blow the pics up. Your blue is definitely a hen.

    Do you know how old the blue was when you bought her? Was she a chick or had her adult feathers already come in when you got her?
