    Hi everyone, First time posting.
    Had a few questions, i recently just got into raising my 1st flock.
    I just recently put in a greenhouse, coop, solar,irrigation. Really went to town with my backyard.

    I currently have 6 chickens.
    2 i picked up less then 2 weeks ago and 4 that ive had for over 2 months.

    The first 2 were white rock, 2nd batch i got another white rock and what i assume to be a black male cooper maran.
    The Chicks are Rhode island red and what ive been told is an Ester egger/Americana.

    My question is, Do any of these appear to be male, if so how well do the Velcro collars work ?
    And do the breeds seem to be correct ?

    2 chicks

    Hi!

    The 2 with the bigger combs, (your last link) I think they are roosters.
    the other white rock looks like a hen to me
    the maran is a rooster for sure.
    the chicks are too young to tell.


    Congrats on all the upgrades! sounds good!
