    Hi everyone, just got my first backyard chickens! What sex and breed are these? They're around 6-8 weeks old. Thanks!

    The black one is a black sex link pullet, could you get better pictures of the other ones? They could be (the black and white one): Barred rock or a black sex link rooster, (the redish one) could be RIR, Red sex-link, or a Production red.

    Thanks, hopefully these pics will help. Kind of hard trying to get them to pose for the camera. :) I can't have roosters so I'm hoping their all hens. [​IMG]

    I see a Black Sexlink (black with the gold neck feathers, definitely a pullet), a Barred Rock (black and silver barred, definitely a pullet), and what is probably a hatchery-grade New Hampshire (the light red one, so far looking like a pullet).
