    I currently have 14 chickens and I can only keep the hens. Can anyone help me identify the breeds? I have 7 of these orange ones, 2 solid blacks, 1 white/creamy/yellow, & 4 of the speckled black ones.

    Any other info you could tell me about them would be awesome!! First time chicken momma!

    Hi there..
    you will need to post separate pictures for each chick, close up face and full side views.

    I do see boys though.

    Here is a picture of some of the faces and sides. I think I could narrow it down with some help.

    I know this sounds ridiculous, but do both cockerels and roosters crow?

    I got them from a guy in Mississippi. He didn't know any details of them. He said they were 6 weeks old when I got them. I got them on 06-1-17. So maybe 2 months old?

    Yes cockerels are males under a year and roosters are males over a year old and the DO crow.

    I agree with @peopleRanimals2 about the sexes so far.
