    Hi I am new to having chickens and I know for sure we have 1 rooster right now :( We live in the city limits so we can't keep him. We did find him a home though.... But my question is can you help and let me know if I have any more. Thanks
    Any guesses on Breeds would be great as well. Got them from a friend and don't want to feel stupid asking her.

    I know the really small ones that are in some of the pictures are to young to sex for sure. But was hoping to find out what the bigger 5 are. We know for sure like I said before we have 1 roo. He was easy to tell because he got the red comb about a week ago. The ones I am asking about are 4-6 weeks old.

    The chipmunky one with the white chest is a speckled sussex I think. Goldish ones are gold sex links (and girls). I have no idea on the others, but they are a bunch of cuties!

    The black and white is a common easter egger color but more difficult to tell roo vs hen.

    Is your friend a chicken person, or did she just kinda dump some chicks on you? I'm asking cause if she's a chicken person, she would LOVE to talk chickens with you and discuss the different breeds, etc. We love to convert others to the chicken side and happily spend hours indoctrinating, I mean discussing!

    I asked her a few questions and it didn't seam like she new 2 much about them. She ordered them from Crackle Hatchery. She did order a straight run special they have going. I guess I can always try asking her some more about them. Thank you for your help.
