    This is the first time we have gotten laying chickens. My son picked these 4 out of a bin at the feed store when they were a couple of days old, well they have grown nicely and I was wondering what kind of chickens I actually have, anybody know:

    I'm going to say you have a Barred Rock, a RIR and 2 EE's! [​IMG]

    And they look to be all pullets- although I'm not 100% positive. I'm sure someone with more experience will chime in![​IMG]
