    I have a couple questions (chicken newbie here!) I have two ~9 week old youngsters that I would like to determine breed and gender. They are from the same person.

    Chick #1 - Smaller than chick #2

    Chick #2 - Has always been larger than chick #1, but now seems to be developing redder wattles.

    The first two look like white rock pullets and Percy is a BLRW(blue laced red wyandotte). [​IMG] Percy is beautiful, I love BLRWs. [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Are they bantam or standard?

    Assuming standard, the two white ones look like White Plymouth Rock hens. The rooster is a Blue Laced Red Wyandotte or a BLRW cross. [​IMG]

    Thank you so much! [​IMG] I was a little afraid that the larger of the two White Rocks was *possibly* a rooster.
