    BSL cockerals are black & white - BSL pullets are black & gold. I say #1 is a pullet. Not sure on 2 & 3. 4 is a pullet.

    ty everyone for answering my questions i really appreciate it so much. I have a 10x8 coop and a 16 X 16 run for all 10 of my chickens looking to add more later just wonders how many will fit comfortably. I am new to raising chickens and want to make sure everything is done correctly. I have 2 BR, 3 RIR which are 7 to 8 weeks old and 2 black sex linked, 3 EE"S which are 4 to 5 weeks old. One of the RIR i am not sure on se yet she/he has boy and girl features will know soon if he/she crows. Again thank you for all the advice i am posting a pic of the RIR and if anyone may have any suggestions i will apreciate it. i keep getting half say pullet and half say roo.

    A full grown chicken needs 1 square foot each.
