Oh hi June! The first black one I'm not sure the lady didn't know. I figure 12-16 weeks.
The next (Ameraucana??). Is 13 weeks
The white one is also 13 weeks.
The red is 16-17 weeks
The chic is about 6 weeks.

Curious on what breeds and sexes

First one looks like a mixed breed cockerel.

The blue and the splash (white one) look like Ameraucana/Marans crosses (Olive Eggers). The blue looks male, the splash looks female.

The red is a pullet and looks like a Production Red.

The red chick is too young to be sure of gender, but looks like a pullet for now. Also looks like a Production Red.

Ok that give me a good idea then. The red puller is either a red production or RIR. The chick is the same also I believe. Hope for good layers. The black roo must be a mix yes. And that's great that the white might be an olive Egger!! Blue and splash means what exactly? And the last one I was really hoping pullet and he did have Marans and either Ameraucanas or maybe they're Easter Eggers.

It's the color. Blue is a dilute gene for black. A single copy of the gene turns a solid black bird into a dark grey/blue color. A splash has two copies of the gene, diluting the black even further into a light grey/white.

The red birds are not dark enough for Rhode Island Red.

Ok thank for clearing that up! Too bad I was hoping for reds.
