    Hi everyone! This is my first post in BYC. Yesterday, I was randomly given three chickens and a coop. Can anyone tell me what breed and sex these are? I think the two full black one might be Austalorps. Not sure about the one with the grey head and yellow feet. I know they are pretty young, I think about 12 weeks but not sure. Any help would be appreciated!!!

    Hello and Welcome to BYC!
    Looks like the middle one is a rooster and the other two are girls. They look like mixes, the girls could be ausralorps color wise but the white faces are off. Poor things look like they have had a hard time of it, somebody got their tail feathers. Happy for them they found their way into a better home. Have you checked them over for mites etc?
