    I bought 12 chicks from TSC 4 weeks ago and I know I've got 2 white rocks, 2 silkies, 6 speckled sussexs, and I've got 5 of something I don't what they are. I had 6 but one died. I need some help on trying to figure out what they are. I'll try to post pics of the progress I've kept up for them.

    I'm new to raising chickens so this helps out a lot! When will I be able to tell if it's a hen or rooster?
     
  8. About 6 to 8 weeks, probably. And I'm not 100% on the breed...
