    Hello
    We are new to raising chickens and bought an assorted group. However we don't know how to identify them either type or gender. They are only a couple weeks old. Any help would be great.

    This one I think may be a rooster

    First one does look like it could end up being a rooster, but all are too young to tell for sure. The middle one could be a buff Orpington, and the last one looks like a gold laced polish.
