How many birds total? Can you separate the pics so we can get better enlargement?

 

from what I can see, left to right 

?, pullet, pullet

cockerel (I think), pullet, pullet

?maybe cockerel, maybe cockerel, ?

 

ages of the birds helps with sexing also.

Hi,

There are six total chickens and they are 9wks in the pictures. I will post each one separately.

Yeah...larger pics would help.  If the EE with the whitish/grayish neck doesn't have any red feathers coming in on the wings, then I'd think all pullets except possibly the polish.  I really don't know enough about polish to tell whether that sporadic crest coming in would indicate anything.  Normally females (at least with silkies) will have a much more even looking crest, even if poor/pet quality.  So I would watch that one...

Caretaker of a lovely mixed flock including: australorp, plymouth rocks, wyandotte, d'uccles, silkies, EEs, andalusian, and a few seramas, plus a golden retriever, great dane, and three cats.  I always swore that I wouldn't succumb to chicken math.  I lied.
