Anyone have any guesses?

Are you asking about breed or gender?? And how old are they? Age would help with gender guesses... I'm not sure about breeds, but depending on age they look like pullets to me so far... and the second one is a gorgeous blue, btw!!

Sorry I did not realize that what I wrote did not come thru to my post. The grey and black ones as my son calls them are English Orpingtons as I was remember, and the brown ones welsummers, and then I have 2 Silver Laced Wyandottes and one Golden. I was told when I bought them they were all pullets, I am just checking that. I haven't gotten decent pics yet of the welsummers, or wyandottes as they just like to run around and hide.

The Orpingtons are 6 to 6 1/2 weeks old and the welsummer is 5 weeks old. Thanks

That's ok... it's why I asked... smile.png

Your Welsummer is 100% a pullet, a cockerel would have a black breast by now...

Orpingtons all look like beautiful pullets too... the greys are actually called blue, but the lighter colored one might be a blue splash... the darker blue is absolutely gorgeous and the lacing looks very, very good... smile.png

Oh ok Thank you! I absolutely love them, they are beautiful to me. But my son is loving the Welsummers, he thinks they are the pretty ones. I love them all, but I have to say the orpingtoms are such pretty chicks.

I like how they all look, lol... had Welsummers but I sold them cuz they became too flighty for me... Orpingtons are amazing though... very nice, calm, laid back personalities... smile.png
