    Hi everyone! I wrote in here a few weeks ago trying to figure out what some of our chicks were but unfortunately something for in our coop and got them all. We have recently gotten 9 new ones. We actually got 10 but one ended up getting sick the day after we brought them home. She was wheezing and having a terrible time breathing and very lethargic :-/ So here's some pics of our new girls/maybe boy

    The large Easter Egger looks like a cockerel, that's the only one that really stands out to me.

    Yes the EE is male. The rest look like pullets for now. Close up individual photos and age would make it easier to be certain.

    Yes we thought he was the rooster. He definitely has the behavior. We aren't for certain how old they're. I'd say some are 7-8 weeks and the EE might be a bit older. We have 2 EE, 2 silkies, 2 rode island reds, 2 austrolorps and 1 buff Orpington

    The Easter Egger looks 8ish weeks, the others look much younger to me. Maybe 5-6 weeks.

    Were you able to get your coop secure?

    I agree. The others are much younger. The rooster is a bully and most of them are picking on the silkies. It's better today but the last couple days have been rough. We separated them yesterday for a while.
