    Hey guys, I got into chicken raising today (for eggs and eventually dinner) and just picked up 3 chicks...was wondering about their breed and some info on one of them.

    Two are fully healthy from what I can tell, whereas one has a major baldness problem around it's neck..
    was also wondering if there is any noob-friendly way to sex them.

    Well, here they are...got them set up in a brooder with a red heat lamp and some pine...

    two of the bald one, and just one shot of the other type.

    The guy I bought them from wasn't versed well in English so I really don't know much about them other than they're kinda cute

    The first 2 look like turkens or naked necks, and the third looks like a golden laced something, maybe wyandotte, but I can't see the comb. You might be able to sex them soon, but you need close-ups of combs and a side shot.
