    Hi there! How many chickens do you have and what breed did the bin say where you bought them? It looks like a Barred Rock in your avatar and the other 3 pictured look like Easter Eggers... though sometimes feed stores label them as Ameraucana. Anyway, they're mixed breeds and can end up being almost any color, but they have cute fluffy cheeks and beards instead of waddles. And unfortunately the pullet bins usually only have a 90% chance of all being female.

    I see that you already posted a new thread under "gender" so hopefully you can find the answer you're looking for. Good luck with your flock!!

    You
    Thank you for the wonderful message! I was at a feed store (Tractor Supply) drawn to the cheeps ❤️. The lady didn’t know the type but said that the bin were pullets.......
