    Ive never owned chickens , never even seen them for sale. So when I saw these I had to get them. I got 6 assorted bantams ? Anyone can tell me sex / type ? I think I have all hens, except the bigger grey one.[​IMG]

    The yellow one I think hmm, trying to think what a they would have bantam wise
    A yellow chick is often a light colored bird. Could be an ee too? The big gray one I'm not sure? You think it might be a roo?

    I think so. It acts different from the others and is the largest. Does a lot stand up watching. [​IMG] that's him standing watching me. Almost like a watch dog haha.

    Ha, its possible, I've got a few extra alert hens like that but it very well could be a roo. I think though there's a good chance they're EEs & silkies.
