Baby chicks..breed & sex guesses?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
These chicks were hatched by a friend and given to us. Any guesses on breed or sex? I think big bird and oreo are roos and the rest maybe hens..im new to this though and could totally be wrong.

They're too young yet, although the comb on Oreo is "big", try more pics when they're about 4 - 6 wks.  Sky & Stormy are "my favorites" , will be interesting to see what they color out to be.

They are to young to sex, do you know she mixed different breeds with one rooster or breeds pure bred? If she breeds pure bred these are my guesses:

Oreo= maybe Barred Rock

Stormy= has muffed cheeks so I would say Easter Egger but does it have feathered legs?
Sky= same as Stormy

Fancy= Maybe a Black Australorp

Big bird= maybe a Buff Orpington

Splash= Maybe a Ancona

Harper= Easter Egger

Sunflower= Maybe sometime type of bantam

Okay im going crazy wanting to know the actual breeds and genders. Here is my though in all the information i have gathered. I think you could be possibly right about oreo or maybe hes a black orp mixed with splash? There is a chick with a partridge pattern named hawk(etta) which is an EE and so is harper. I think splash and sunflower are maybe splash orps, big bird a buff orp., storm and sunny blue spash orps fancy possible also black orp or BR like oreo. I could be way wrong. I got as much info as i could from my friend about her birds and the eggs she incubated, here is the problem though she gathered all the eggs together and just picked out a few and incubated them. Im so anxious, i suck at waiting!! Thanks for your in put. About to see what i can find about a few of the breeds you mentioned!
