    Hi I'm new to chicken keeping. I have three chickens which I believed to be hens but now I'm having second thoughts. Any help would be appreciated. [​IMG][/IMG]

    Your Rocks are actually black sexlink roosters. Their dark barring and red leakage give them away.
    Your Vorwerk is a pullet.

    Thanks very much for your reply. I though they were roosters. That will explain why they keep fighting.

    agree your Rocks are black sex link cockerels, and thanks to Junebuggena I know what a Vorwerk pullet looks like
