I just bought chickens for the first time saturday (after much debate with my other half. lol). I'm pretty new to this but have been reading as much as possible to learn about raising and breeding them, and even sexing, although that seems like a tedious task that requires much experience? I'm curious on what breeds I may have picked out. I picked 4 red pullets as I mostly wanted eggs, and 2 bantams as I love their unique look. The majority of the bantams in the bin looked to be (from what I seen on another identification thread) Old English Game Bantams. I went with the most different out of the bin that didn't resemble the same characteristics as the rest. I chose the darkest one in the bin and another one with red wings (the only one that looked like that). I had my heart set as soon as I laid eyes on it. I'm just wondering if the coloring could be an early indicator of sex as they were unsexed. I'm really hoping for a hen as I'm pretty sure I'm not in ordinance to have six chickens..lol. So I don't want my neighbors getting annoyed (as much as I don't care) until we can settle on a house to buy over the next 5 months. Other wise I wouldn't care. I'm assuming it will be rather beautiful, so sex is moot other than the neighbor aspect as I didn't buy the bantams for eggs. Sorry for such a long post..lol. Thank you for any time or help given. = ) I'm looking to learn as much as possible.
