    1 of our chickens was hatched in my daughters class so not sure what she is. She is the white one named Peep.
    3 are from Orschlen's and came from a bin with a sign that said they are Bantams. What kind I am not sure. They look more like Golden Sexlink's to me. (Ginny, Penny & McRoo)
    2 also came from Orschlen's in a bin that said they are Rhode Island Red's. Only 1 looks like a Rhode Island to me. (Ruby & Sassafras)

    I see a Red sex-link, about two Production Reds, maybe a 3 hatchery Rhode Island Reds. Also I think I see three cockerels, McRoo, Ginny, and Penny.

    Peep, Ruby, and Sassafras appear to be pullets while the other three look to be cockerels.

    Thank you, I was really afraid that Ginny and Penny may be Cockerels. 3 pullets and 3 cockerels are not a good combination are they? Isn't the rule 1 rooster to every 4-5 hens?

    Thank you for your reply =) We were guessing McRoo was boy, hence the name. Was hoping that I was wrong about Ginny and Penny being boys.
