    Just got our first chickens at the beginning of April - 2 Rhode Island Reds and 2 Amberlinks. We are pretty sure one of the RIRs is a male (they were all supposed to be pullets). They are 7-8 weeks old now, fully feathered and enjoying their coop and run in our backyard. I have already gotten a lot of great information from this site - looking forward to more.

    Thanks!

    Considering how often people get males that are supposed to be pullets - just one is a blessing. Hope the rest will stay female for you.

    Hi and welcome aboard - glad that you've joined us.

    Once your chicks are 6-8 weeks you can post pics of the suspect ones on the What Breed or Gender is This? forum for confirmation of gender.

    Best wishes
