    Hello[​IMG]

    I'm new to the chicken world, but lovin it so far. I bought 6 chicks from Tractor Supply about 3 1/2 weeks ago. One chick didn't make it [​IMG] But still have 5 nice chicks. 2 are sex links, so I'm 99% sure they are hens. I have one that I believe is a brown leghorn and I'm pretty sure it's a hen. I also have 2 white leghorns and I'm not sure if they are hens. I'm thinking at least one of them is a rooster.

    Can I post some pics and get some advice? I can't have any roosters because of the cock a doodle doo factor.

    Thanks

    Hello there and welcome to Backyard chickens! I suggest posting pictures of your chicks in the link that CTKen gave you, and I am sure some folks over there will be able to help you out with them!

    Generally photos of chicks 6-8 weeks old will generate more accurate opinions. The younger they are - you will get guesses.
