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.

Great, we thought it was actually just injured, lol. Glad to know it's actually meant to not have anything on the neck.. Thanks!!! Thinking I'll be on here quite a lot! ^.^
