    I have 6 chickens they hatched on the first weekend of august. So they are 11 weeks old. The person we got them from said some of them were a red sex linked crossed with a RIR. Others are some sort of grey cross. One crowed this morning and is definitely a rooster. Two others are hens. The other three I am unsure on.
    The first one is Himowori

    2 is a girl; 1 and 3 are definitely roosters. The red on the wings of the light one and the darker red on the wings of the other are dead giveaways. That pullet is gorgeous! I wonder what kind of a cross she is?
