    So these are my 5 chicks. They are all approx. 35 days old. Recieved all from MPC. I believe that I've identified the breeds correctly by what I ordered as they are all so different.



    First is a Speckled Sussex:

    Second is a White Plymouth Rock:

    Third is a Black Australorp: Worried that this one is a cockerell???

    Fourth is a Red Star hybrid:

    Fifth is a Barred Rock:

    Thanks for the input!!! I'm only allowed to have pullets in my area as I live in the city so I'd need to re-home any that are gonna crow. Thanks again!!!

    I agree, looks like all pullets. I know the red star and BR are pullets for sure, males look very different. The only one I'm not sure on is the white rock, it looks like it's getting a pretty big comb and I think I see teeny wattles coming in.

    Update: so I think all turned out to be pullets... just a maybe still on this one and was looking to get a little help as I would have to rehome a rooster.

    This is a Red Star at 16 weeks.

    That's a pullet. Male Red Stars are white/ivory with gold or red leakage. [​IMG]
