    This is my first year with chickens. Got 3 to test the waters then got 5 more for layers/livestock. DH built me a coup big enough for 20 so I will probably be expanding. Joined to ask questions and try to find out if my pullets are all pullets. I would like at least 8 hens so would like to id any roos asap to pick up a few more chicks while the weather is warm.

    5 amber links, 2 RIR's and 1 unknown. This chick was in the RIR bin but looks different. I posted to the gender/breed forum and respondes were EE or RSL cockerel but all opinions welcome. If RSL it was mixed in at the nursery because the feed store didn't have RSL. 10 weeks old today.

    Best place to post would be "what breed or gender is this."
