I would appreciate your thoughts on my mixed brood. I have 5 chicks, 7 weeks old now. Very mixed parentage which is making it very difficult to figure out what's what. Father cockerel was Cream Legbar, same for all 5 chicks. Mother hens were cuckoo maran, bluebelle, black rock, buff sussex. I bought eggs from a small holder and hatched them at home.
These 2 look like barred rocks to me but not sure how that works out, would a legbar x black rock make this or are they marans, although they have yellow legs with black markings down the front. I am presuming they are both boys but only based on comb colour and size.
Here are the others. Looks like another boy here! And then 2 almost certainly girls. Not sure of breeds but thinking the grey girl might be a Cream Legbar as she keeps looking like she's getting the start of a hairdo, so her mother could have been the bluebelle. I'm guessing the browns could be showing buff sussex colouring.
When they were tiny... All the buff/brown ones has pretty eye stripes and chipmunk markings. Both black had white head spots.
