Breed and or Gender Please

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
going through my coops and trying to come up with a plan. I am a newbie to chickens (started last year) so I lost track of what is what. I received a shipment of an assorted pick of eggs and these are what hatched. Interested in breed identification and gender ( I think two are cockerel , the two cream colors are females and the spotted(?) one is possibly cockerel? I think the brown one is welsummer, but not sure? Not sure what the black one is? They are about 7-8 weeks old. :











Thanks!

Can you post pictures of each one on it's own? Looks like you have 3 Olive Egger/Easter Eggers, one is a cockerel. You have a Production Red cockerel. And a Welsummer cockerel. Need to see a better pic of the black one to identify.

 Since the place you got them from does have true Ameraucana, I think this one is a Wheaten pullet.

Thanks all!  This really helps! When they hatched out they were all together and I should have separated them by barriers because it got real confusing real fast.  Your identification helps so much.  I'm  SUPER excited I got two WAM pullets.  I think the OE cockerel is cool looking so he's a keeper.
