Thanks guys!

I got 11 chicks. 3 barred rocks(after tons of reading I think 1 is a roo), 2 wellsummers, 2 Rhode Island reds, 2 white leghorns, and 2 mystery chicks. I got the mysteries from a cute little farm I found. The owner said she was "hatching for egg color" so I'm hoping to get some baby blues or greens. The rest I got from my local feed store. Here are some pictures- the first 2 pictures are of the barred rock that I think is a rooster,thoughts? and the last 2 pictures are the mystery chicks. The brown one looks maybe to have wellsummer in it but I am just guessing and clearly I am but a very early beginner. The gray one I think is so pretty but have no clue what she is...

You have beautiful chicks.  How old is the barred rock?   You can post photos at" what breed or gender is this." Accuracy will be better if chicks are 6 weeks old or more at time of photos.  I'm kinda leaning  toward Cockerel myself.

Thanks! He was about 3 weeks in that photo. But he is so much whiter than my other 2 barred rocks even this early. I did post a thread there I was just told to wait a while to see. so we shall see!
