    so in early to mid February I recently got chicks from Meyer hatchery - 4 are from the fry pan bargain (all Roos of heavier breeds), and 3 are hens from the rare egg-laying variety pack. The problem is, I don’t know what breeds they are, I have a few guesses but I have no idea if I’m right. I’ll put the pictures below and I appreciate any and all guesses or ideas of what breeds they might be! Also I don’t expect this to be right, but maybe someone could help me guess the genders too?? I’ll put my guesses below each chicken pic, thanks in advance! :)

    I’m thinking this one might be a rooster?? My guess is a speckled sussex maybe?

    This one I am absolutely puzzled about no guesses except for that it’s a hen?

    First one is not a speckled Sussex,but looks to be bred with some,second pic looks like an all white Cochin,we’re they sold as bantams?The gray one in picture four looks like a blue cochin,and is probably a male.The fifth pic looks to be a mixed between some sorta red birds.Defiantly not New Hampshire,but maybe a NhxRed sexlink mix.Sixth pic looks like a EE mix with that comb,and could be blue andulusian or a blue austrolorp.

    No, they are all full size chicken breeds. Are you sure they’re mixes??? They are supposed to be purebred
