    I have had 5 hens for a year now, but I got them when they were already laying. Easter Bunny brought me 12 new fuzzy butts which he purchased at our local TSC. The first 6 were sold as RIR and I feel certain that they are, but they are straight run, so only time will tell what sex they are. The others were sold as bantam mix, so I need help with breed. I have my guesses, but thought you more experienced members might be more certain.

    That little yellow one looks like a white leghorn to me - I have some 5 day olds myself!!!

    That would be great. That's what my DH has been wanting. Hope it's a girl.
    Aren't they just the cutest things. I can't tell you how much time I've spent just watching them go through their antics.

    Can't help you will breed (I'm in the same boat as you right now... 11 bantam chicks from tsc!) - but they are awfully cute!!!
