    Hello I am a newbie to chicken farming but I am already addicted. My goal is to have a hen and rooster of several breeds. I recently bought some chicks and am wondering what kind they are. As well as what my rooster is. Someone please help me identify them. Thanks. [​IMG]

    Your roo is probaly a new hampshire red. Your chicks might be cinnamon queens and leggerns.

    You could post your photos at "what breed or gender is this." for the rooster - but, with the chicks it's better to wait till 6-8 weeks of age. Also photos are much better if the chick isn't held or behind wire fences. Best for them to be alone.

    Greetings from Kansas, veganchick, and [​IMG]! Happy you joined our community! Your chicks are a little young to be accurately identified at this point, in my opinion. But you can post the pics in this link if you like:

    And the Learning Center is packed with articles on almost every chicken related topic:

    And if you want to chat with some local poultry folk, find your state thread in the link below and say howdy:

    PS the rooster photo is not clear enough to make out his true colors, it looks foggy. Maybe you could get a nice clear view of him.

    Welcome to BYC! It's great to have you.

    Can't really see any of these that well... chicks are too young for a good guess at breed or gender. Cock MAY be New Hampshire but I can't see much of him...

    Just out of curiosity, as your username implies you're vegan, what will you do with the eggs your hens lay, if you don't eat them? Not judging, just curious.
