    Hello all. This will be my first post on this forum. My family was give a few chickens from a friend that bought too many about 4 weeks ago. At the time we were told the chickens were about 2-3 weeks old. Here they are when received them.

    My dog was trying to figure out what this new present was.

    They are now about 4-6 weeks old and we are trying to figure out what type they are and what gender they may be. Can you help me out?

    This one I believe to be a RIR pullet:

    Here is another I think to be a RIR, but probably cockerel:

    And the last I think may be a barred rock cockerel:

    Please let me know what your opinions are. If they are both actually cockerels I will have to get rid of them and will have to find another pullet so the last one is not left alone.

    I agree with all your breed and gender guesses- two RIRs (one boy one girl) and a barred rock boy. The two boys may get into it as they get older, and/or overwhelm the hen. You might either want to rehome one, or get some more hens to fill out the flock. [​IMG]
