    Hello everyone,

    Been wanting to backyard chickens for a while now, and finally got to the point where I could do it. Bought 6 pullets and I know 3 of them are barred rocks. The other 3, the breed are a mystery to me however and I am also suspecting one of them might be a rooster. Hoping those with more expertise can take a guess. Pictures at approximately 4-5 weeks old.

    Nice assortment. Are you allowed to keep the rooster?

    Unfortunately, ordinance in my area does not allow it. Too bad, I just looked at pictures of Buff Orpington Roosters and they are beautiful birds!

    Good news is I have an uncle who loves all sorts of birds (has pheasants, chickens, peacocks) who is willing to take him as he has the space and is allowed to have roosters.
