    Hello folks, I have a few more chickens & wanted to get your opinions on what breed & gender they might be.

    The first Barred Rocks look like pullets to me, and the roo is a roo, but there is no such thing as a silver-laced barred rock. Yours is a Barred Rock roo, and a pretty one! I don't have sex-links, but they look like pullets, too, and I don't know what the red rooster is. Nice flock!

    Cool, thank ya'll. I have never heard of a Silver Laced Barred Rock but the feller seemed to know his chickens as he raised Welsummers, Cochin's etc... I gave $10.00 for him cause I like his color & temperment. It's good to here ya'll think the barred one's are pullets. I don't need another roo. My red rooster is the best one I've ever had I think. I like the color of the Sex-Link hens too. I have 13 all together now & I'm thinkin about gettin a trio of young banty's but I'm gonna add on to my chicken house first. They only use it to lay & roost in as I have about a 1/2 acre chain linked in for them to free range. I keep traps set on the outside of the fence for coons & such so my chickens can come & go as they please inside the fence. My hen house is 6ft wide X 8ft deep X 7ft tall with both of the side walls having a 2ft wide chicken wired opening the length of the side walls for ventilation. I'm gonna add another 8ft on to it in a week or so & I think that will be plenty of room for right now.

    Quote:Ok, if not Sex-Link then what are they please? Also, are you sure they are not hens as they both sure look like pullets to me. Thank you for your opinion.
