First, let me say I am completely new to the wonderful world of Chickens! I recently was blessed to acquire 4 chicks at the end of July. I have one RIR, one Buff, and one Barred. I just lost an Ameracauna last night to a stupid snake. It was horrifying to walk up to chat with my girls and see her being strangled. I thought that they were secure but found a spot that it got in at. Ive been very curious as to the gender of at least 2 of my chickens. My Barred and my RIR. These two have been "fighting" or barging each other alot. But I noticed that my buff is starting to participate in this as well, though not as much. Now, I figure this is just the pecking order status being established, however my Barred has been alot slower in feather development and has a rather red comb developing. My RIR has a pink comb but was the first to get feathers. Any thoughts on what you think they are? Really worried that I might have two roos and one hen! Thank you for your thoughts!!
