    I got today my first rooster EVER. He is a 5 months old beautiful white araucana.
    My hens are one 7 months old RIR, and 13 weeks old Barred rock and red star.
    The 2 pullets I assume are hens as so I was told at the feed store but the lady that gave me the rooster bought him as a hen from the same store.
    Anyway, I am very curious what kind of chicks will the mating produce and will greatly appreciate any thoughts and advice. No need to say these are also my first chickens EVER :)


    Thanks in advance to everybody for taking the time

    If you mate that mixed group? You'll get chickens! [​IMG]

    Mutts, but chickens. Don't tell the chickens, though. They'll never know.

    We got the rooster but now I am getting worried as I heard they can get mean to little kids....
