    Hi yall...

    Here are some pics of my sweet babies. Julie and sarah. I was thinkin maybe Julie is a Roo...hopefully not, neighbors would not dig it. Her tail swoops up....Sarahs is blunt. They both have red chest feathers and supposedly are black star sexlinks. I have no clue as this is my first chicken experience...all I know is I ADORE these chickens and we will have to move if I have a Rooster!!! They are about 3 months....

    Your opinions??

    Here are the babies. Paris and Nicole (named for good reason) 4 weeks old. Hens (according to mypetchicken.com and lets HOPE). I ordered 2 RI reds...are these RI reds? They don't look like it to me...and the description of these chickens claimed to be "very good docile pets". AHEM...not so much. These redheads are terrible aggressive, dominent and mean compared to how the black stars were when they were chicks. The lil black one in the foreground is Sammy. He's a Plymouth Rock. Sweet as PIE!!!

    Can you get a better picture of the heads/comb/wattles of the chickens? That would help us determine if they are boys or girls.

    The RIR do look like mine did, so they very likely are RIRs. Mine is not mean but she's certainly not the friendliest chicken in my bunch either.

    My experience with RI Reds was bad. They were fine with eachother, but total jerks to all the other chickens. Needless to say, we no longer have them.

    The first two are black sex links and are definately female. Don't be startled if they develop combs and wattles quicker than the other pullets it's pretty typical for them. [​IMG]

    Don't give up on the Rhodies yet, some aggressive chicks grow up to be sweeties and sweet chicks can grow up to be aggressive. Food bribes are always a great way to a chicks heart. [​IMG]
