    I let my chickens out this morning and heard crowing from my coop! Which startled me a bit... I really thought I had all hens. They’re all about 14-16 weeks not laying yet. I got a “variety” pack from a nice older gentleman that raises chickens. We have 15 total.
    I made a “line up” of the suspects if you will...
    All input is welcomed. As I am a newbie. :)

    I'm no expert but pics 3 and 5 might contain the culprit(s) - based on the size of comb and wattle of course.

    #8 and #9 are red sex links
    Red sex link hens are brown.
    Red sex link males are white.
    There definitely not roosters because the hens in those photos are brown.
    If they were roosters they would be white..

    Okay. Thanks! The black chicken “Benny” is the same in pictures 3-5.
    I thought it was an australorp but “he” has fluffy cheeks... maybe an ameraucana.
    And the orange one is “penny”.
