    Hello! My family is brand new to chicken raising! I have two sweet boys and we are so excited to raise our new chicks!
    My husband bought three chicks at our local Atwood’s, and none of them had wing tags.
    Yellow chick is Heyhey (from Moana)
    Brown chick is HENrietta
    Black chick is Johnny Cash
    Can you tell me what type and maybe gender yet?
    Thank you!! 2B35C19F-7F00-4EC6-9114-E5BD8F44B792.jpeg 61FAF603-98D7-4EEF-8639-C5778697F98C.jpeg

    They look like they might be all pullets.

    Hi there!
    A bit to young to know for certain, but nobody is an obvious cockerel yet! I couldn't tell you the breed- very pretty though :D

    I don't think they are roosters, if one was to be a rooster it would be the one that if in the second picture. It has a red comb, but last year I had a chick that had a red comb at a young age and it was a hen. The black one looks like an Black Australorp hen.

    Oh HENrietta! That was the one I noticed the comb on. That one was so cute today! It was so nice outside, it was our first time to take them outside for a romp. It kept laying down and stretching out a leg and wings. I had to google search to make sure it was ok. Turns out it was stretching and soaking up the sun ☀️

    That's a lavender Orpington. Super cute!
    How old is it? That will help me determine its gender.
