    About 2 weeks ago, we had a chicken massacre at my house [​IMG]! My husband's STUPID DOG got a hold of all my chickens (3 JJ's, a barred rock, and 2 speckeled sexlinks) and killed them all! So now, we have learned from THAT mistake, and have reinforced the chicken coop, and the built a dog run. Stupid dog......(I'm not a "dog person"). Anyway, we are going to try this chicken thing again.

    I now have 6 chicks (2 are Jersey crosses, 1 Cochen, 2 white rock mixes, and a stripey one), and 4 laying hens (1 Columbian Wyandot, 2 Buff Orpingtons, and an Easter Egger). Today, I got 4 "Pullets".....[​IMG].....for free from someone on Craigslist, but I don't know what breed they are. Please take a look at the pics and let me know if you can tell. Hopefully none of them are roos's because I don't know how to sex them, and we're not allowed to have them where we live....but then again, I'm also only supposed to have 5!

    The dark one looks like it could be a speckled sussex, to me anyway. The mostly white one, maybe a delaware? I have no guess on the others, but I am a newbie. :D
