    Hi BYC [​IMG],

    I am interested in seeing what people think these chicks are. I know what some should be but others I don't have a clue same with what sex they are. I would like to find out soon as I am only allowed to keep the hens no roosters. [​IMG] So finding out now will help me find great homes for the roosters, and maybe some of the hens I am not able to keep. Thank you a ton ahead of time, your help is so greatly appreciated.

    Best wishes,
    Leah

    [​IMG] I hope they are all pullets but I don't think so... they are all strait run except for the polish and silver laced the others should be at least half roosters... Please help!!! [​IMG] I would like to have somewhat of a consensus before I find new homes for the roos

    I need to tell you that the 6 week old "mille fleur" is not mille fleur colored. mille fleur is a coloring, not a breed.

    Hi [​IMG] I do realize Mille Fleur is a color not a breed but these chicks are from McMurrey and that is what they were labeled as, that is why I have them as Mille Fleur bantams. I also know mille fleur should show white speckling but these don't as well... but this is the closest I have to an accurate breed description. If you would like to make a guess as to what their breeds or sexes are I would appreciate it, thanks. [​IMG]

    Can you post a close up picture of the silkies combs?
    I don't know much about the others but I keep lots of silkies!

    Yes I can post more pictures, that would be great I can really use the help especially with the silkies since they are the ones I am most unsure about. Ill see if I can get more pictures now or if not I will have them up by tomorrow. [​IMG]

    Quote:x2 That is exactly what I was thinking.
    If that is the case, you got lucky as all cluck. And those are some good looking chicks too. I like their coloring.
    Those buff silkies look a little sleepy or something, though. [​IMG]
