    I bought these chicks as straight run from tractor supply. They are ~ 4-5 months old now. I think I have figured out who is a he and who is a she. I've done lots of googling and have some guesses as to what types of chickens they are but I'm really not sure at all. This is my first time owning chickens. Would love confirmation on what sex and breed you guys think I have.

    Thanks so much!

    1. I believe this guy started out as a black chick.

    [​IMG] 1, 2, 3 are cockerels, and 4, 5, 6 are pullets. This year many of the TSC birds that I have seen appear to be crossbreds.

    Production red or mixed cockerel
    hatchery RIR cockerel
    If he's all black, Australorp cockerel
    New Hampshire pullet
    The last two are pullets, and pretty generic/mixed looking.

    Thanks for the help.

    I'm bummed that I would get mixed chickens from tractor supply.

    It's been a weird thing this year. I don't know what hatchery they sourced from, but there have been some very funky birds coming out of TSC this year.
