Hello! I am new to this forum as well as new to chicken-keeping. So far we are loving it, we built our own beautiful coop and quickly obtained 6 chickens. I wanted one rooster, and I definitely have him... Sugar Daddy is his name and he's already crowing for us. (I love that sound!) 2 other ones that I thought were little girls (because that's what I was told) have me baffled. One, Mrs. Olsen, is mostly black with reddish/brown and iridescent feathers here and there. The other, Mazie, is a Barred Rock. I'm not sure of their exact ages, but I'm guessing 4 months at this point. If any of you can take a look at these pictures, and tell me what you think on their sex, I would be so grateful. I cannot have more than 1 rooster with such a small flock! Thanks, I really hope to figure this out with some help from this group. Mrs. Olsen, unsure on breed. Comb is small, but bright red. Mazie, Barred Rock. I know Mazie's coloring is lighter than I see on pics of barred rock hens, however there are none of the stringy, skinny tail feathers and saddle feathers; unless these come later? The comb is single, and not very bright red.
