    Ok,
    we have 12 RIR that I bought from the local grain store, but we picked up 4 more at a chicken swap this past weekend.

    #1's name is Grasshopper. We are told that he is a Roo, but no idea what kind of chicken

    #2's name is Bunny and we are told she is a hen, but also no idea what kind of chicken.

    #3 is the larger of two Americanas so we are told. Just not sure if its a Roo or hen.

    #4 is the smaller of the two Americanas, just not sure about Roo or hen.


    Thanks for any help you have!

    Thanks Green Family Farms.

    Any idea with the two easter eggers of the sex? They came from a straight run mix, and I am just worried I am going to end up with too many Roos. We have sexed pullet RIRs, but I think one of the twelve is a Roo, and we have Grasshopper. Hopefully no more as I worry they will be constantly fighting. [​IMG]

    Your 2 easter eggers are pullets.


    They look like our Sparrow (very front) and our Cleopatra (far left).
