    My wife and I have 3 chickens which we keep in the backyard. At first we thought we had 3 roosters but about 2 weeks ago we started noticing eggs in the coop. Please help us identify the sex of these chickens as we have no idea. [email protected] [​IMG]

    They appear to be crossed with different breeds....
    I would say that the 2rd one looks quite a bit like a Cream Brabanter

    All three very pretty hens. Do they lay colored eggs?

    The 2nd one looks like it could be a black sex link . . . . . they lay brown eggs tho and they lay LOTS of eggs. What color eggs are you finding?

    It looks to me like the first one might have muffs? I don't know if it is just the angle of the shot or if it actually has muffs. . .
