    Alright everyone. We're new to this, and still going off how the feed store ID'd the breeds, and based on a little research. Please keep me honest there.

    Really curious about Gender. So Chicken Sages, please chime in. Our flock is about six weeks old.

    This is Ryan Seacrest. Our Maran. If we have a roo, we think it's this one. The biggest, and bossiest.

    Here's Ryan again surrounded by the other "Gals."

    Ryan and Phyllis, our Golden Laced Wyandotte (Originally ID'd as Silver Laced by Feed Store folks as a tiny chick).

    And here is a photo of the whole gang from about a week ago.

    Thanks for any input. Will post some better profile shots as they come.

    Thanks sassysarah. If that is indeed the case, it's kind of a bummer, as we may not have roo's inside the city limits, and we'll have to say goodbye to Ryan Seacrest, who we actually kinda like - a lot:(. We have a friend with a farm outside of town that is prepared to take any roo's we might end up with.

    Thank you for the kind words, woodenfarm. My wife is a photographer by trade, and this is her just her relaxing with camera in hand. She is quite talented. Expect many more tasteful chicken photos!
