    OK, so I have 8 chickens. Didn't get good pictures of all of them though. I have:
    3 straight run brown leghorns
    3 straight run ameraucanas
    1 australorp hen
    1 buff orpington hen

    I had a kid who was in FFA sex them when they were a few days old and he said there were two females and one male in each of the three straight runs. However, I'm rather doubting that at the moment. I can't tell with the Ameraucanas, but it seems like two of the brown leghorns are getting big wattles and one isn't. (I only got a picture of one of the big-wattled leghorns, but they're nearly identical.)

    They weren't really in a posing mood, so I had to hold them to get a picture. Hope that doesn't mess anything up. They are about 6 weeks old.
