    I have 5 week old mixed breed chickens that I hatched in my kindergarten classroom. I am a first time chicken owner and I am looking for some insight on possible breeds and genders. I will post 2 pictures of each of the chickens below. Thanks in advance for your help!

    To young to say for sure on gender so what ever I put is not a definite guess

    1. Easter Egger pullet
    2. I'm thinking it has some Plymouth Rock, Leghorn, or Delaware in it, also thinking pullet so far
    3. BR or Dominque mix, cockerel
    4. Australorp mix perhaps, looking suspiciously like a cockerel
    5. Same as #2, pullet

    #5 is your only possible pullet. All the others are very obvious cockerels.
    #1 Easter Egger
    #2 Delaware or Columbian Rock
    #3 Dominique mix.
    #4 Australorp or Jersey Giant.
    #5 White Rock
