We are new to chickens and loving it! We have 5 RIRs- and I am attaching pics- roosters or Pullets, people who know more than me? We also have some teensy buff orpingtons and black Australorps. So excited!

Where are my pics... :-/

I tried uploading from my phone, then re-taking pics directly in post. Grr

Well two are larger than the others with longer tail feathers, two are kinda in the middle and one is smaller with barely any tail feathers at all! We have had the chicks since 4/5, so they are about 3 weeks old?
They all hop up on our little perch (1/2 inch dowel about 4" above litter) from time to time and two slept there last night! Exciting!

Welcome to BYC!

If they are too young, it may be hard to tell the gender yet. It takes a few weeks of growing to really be able to see the differences between pullets and cockerels. But you can post them here so we can have a look see! We love to look at chicks!

We also have a What Breed and Gender section you can also post pics for some good ID....

If you need any tips or hints on raising your new brood, you can stop by our learning center for lots of good reads on all the aspects of keeping poultry...

Enjoy your new babies! Make yourself at home here on BYC and welcome to our flock!
