    Hi! My daughter hatched chickens in her classroom and we ended up taking home 6! We are trying to figure out their sex. We think we have 4 pullets and 2 Roos. The are 9 weeks. Not sure of the type of chickens they are either. All different. The two black ones we think are Roos. Does anyone have a guess? :)

    Post your photos at "what breed or gender is this." they are very good at ID-ing them.

    And .... [​IMG] Personally I like a mixed lot of different colors ... we started off with all RIRs and just recently added 5 different kinds to our flock. It's a nice change.
