    I am a newbie with raising chickens. Any help with breed type and gender would be most appreciated.

    I am pretty sure the black one is a roo.

    The white ones I think are hens.

    There are all about 12 weeks old.

    We received them from my daughters school. It was a classroom project watching the eggs hatch.

    Any replies would be most helpful.

    Thanks from Manito, IL.

    The black one looks just like our Black Australorp roosters.

    The white ones I am less sure of, but they look like Brahmas to me with the feathered legs... The ones in the bottom pic look like roos to me and the one you can see the face of in the top pic looks like a hen...

    But I am no expert! [​IMG] Hopefully someone else more knowledgeable will chime in!
