    Only one picture is showing and the one chicken in it looks like a cockerel. How old are they?

    Sorry this is what happens when I let the
    Wife use forum [​IMG][​IMG] . The white ones we got at Easter so about 11/12 weeks old and the black ones a few weeks later so about 9 weeks old. I am very new to this and not even sure of what kind they are, think the black ones are French copper Marian not sure of the White ones any help would be great

    The solid white one looks like a Plymouth Rock cockerel, the white one with the red patches looks like a Red sex-link cockerel, the black one could be a Black Australorp pullet not sure though. The one in the first post is a cockerel and it looks like a Barred Rock mix I think.

    Thank you, we had a feeling the White ones wher cockerels, really wanted hens as kids wanted eggs, lucky local farm will take them if they where cockerels as can't really have three of them in my back garden, which is s shame really as kids have got really attached to them least kids got to see them hatch and grow with they loved and we walk past the farm all the time. hopefully next time we will have better luck
