    Hi I have already introduced myself in the new members section and I am interested in finding more out about my flock.. Hope you can help

    We recently got two new chicks and are worried one may be a roo.. I have already taken one roo back because he broke the rules too many times and his crows got just too good (these two 6 wk old chicks are replacements) and we have a 18wk white sussex roo who needs a home soon before he gets noisy...

    Anyway here is a photo of the two new chicks, the black one I am told is a austrolop cross and the other is a maran cross.

    On your chicks, the Faverolle looks like a rooster, the other one looks like a pullet. I think your hen is either a mix or maybe a Blue Marans.

    I'm thinking that your two chicks are pullets (though I'm not as sure on the reddish one). Your hen is likely a lovely mixed breed.

    Well fingers crossed, I'm staying hopeful...Thankyou!!

    I forgot to mention fluffy has an extra toe on each foot and doesn't have full feathered feet just her outside toe, she likes to growl a lot especially when picking her up she is very noisy maybe she is part cat she sounds more like a cat than a chicken.
