    Hi! We're somewhat new to backyard chicken keeping. Our girls were hatched out in late April. They are 9-weeks old. The eggs were hatched out by our neighbors and originally came from a hobby farm. We know that there were Easter Eggers and Rhode Island Reds, but unsure what else may have been in the mix. They were sexted using the wing method, which was about the best we could do. Frankly, we don't care what breed they are so long as we know how best to care for them. Our girls are pets, will not be culled. They're pure enjoyment with egg benefits! We have a no roster ordinance so if any end up being roos, they'll have to go back to the hobby farm we got the eggs from. Any help with breed info and/or sexing our flock would be greatly appreciated. I also attached a picture of their coop. Any advice there would be appreciated as well. Much thanks!

    There is no such thing as "wing sexing" unless you are dealing with a very specific cross of fast feathering male X slow feathering female and it is done at one day of age. It is otherwise irrelevant.
