Hi I'm new here but have lurked for a while. I just never registed and said hello sooner because the members here always seem to ask what I've been wondering and other members here give such good answers that I never needed to. So far all my chicks are doing very good and I haven't lost any. I couldn't have done it without this forum. So, Hello & Thanks! I got my chickens as day olds April 22. I was told the red ones were "comparable" to RIRs and that the black ones were comparable to "Plymouth Blacks." I ordered 10 and got a peanut. There are 4 reds and I'm wondering if they are Red Stars (sex linked females). I have 7 black ones and appear to be two types. Also, I heard a crow the other day and there was a black one looking a little cocky. I'll see if you can figure it out. I'm not sure if it's male though. I know the combs aren't big but there is some other stuff to. just general behavior. hmmm... I don't know what to think. A couple weeks ago but you can see their markings better: I'll try to get better pictures if I need to. They are not very photogenic and hate being posers. lol Any help is appreciated.
