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.

And I'll go out and try to get better ones of the other chicks. Thanks!

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.
