    i asked for help before but my pictures wasn't the best so i took more pictures. i have 11 bantams i'm trying to sex. i have no idea of their ages or anything. i was supposed to have gotten 9 hens and 1 rooster. but as you can tell i didn't. the small one i got just because it was so cute. i'm guessing i got about half and half. please can somebody help me. i don't need that many roosters but really not for sure of what i do have.

    The only one I'm completely sure of is the one in front of the fan (pic 7). It has orange webbed feet and an orange beak....well its a duck.

    I'd have to say your guesses are pretty right. Time will tell, but the ones with the big red combs are boys for sure if they are all under 3 months old. Which by their body shapes, feathering, and little fluffy bits on the face, are 6-8 weeks old. Some may be closer to 12.

    MPC Is My Pet Chicken ~
    Google them or maybe www.mypetchicken.com will work. They have one full page of just bantams.

    Right now I have 4 "real" size chickens and 4 bantams..

    I love them! [​IMG]

    i only have bantams but have thought about getting regular chickens. not really for sure on how they are different. like do they have different needs and stuff like that. i wouldn't think they would but hey i thought i could tell a rooster from a hen also. [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]
