    Hi all,

    Ive added a few more pics of my chickens a few breeds for them have been mentioned a few times and they are Black Australorp, Barred Rock & Splash Orpington, what do you think??

    Could any of you have a rough guess at there age, as cant quite remember (with all the exitement of getting these) if he said 6wks or 9wks??

    Is the Black Australorp Hen or Roo (supposed to be a hen untill some1 kindly pointed out that it may infact be a roo). Im new to all this & honestly haven't got a clue lol!!

    Cheers for all you help & comment so far.

    Well, either at 6 or 9 weeks, looks like your Australorp is a roo. The other two are girls.
