What we know: We purchased (4) one-week-old chickies (all supposedly sexed to be female) at a local hatchery about 9mos ago. Two were "Red Star" (i.e., sex-linked.. young females are red; males are not, we believed); These 2 were both red. Turned out, 3 of the 4 were male! We returned the other 2 roos (Speckled Sussex), but this fellow wasn't to be caught, so he stays. We're now wondering what breed he is, as our daughter wants to hatch some eggs & he's our only roo, so would be nice to understand what breed of hen would work best. Oh yeah... the 4th chickie... the "other Red Star" SHE's now laying eggs & he's not! Would love somebody's guess on what breed he is. Thanks!!
