    The first one looks like a cochin cockerel, the second one looks to be a silkie mix cockerel, the third one looks like a rhode island red but hard to tell without a picture of its comb and wattles, the fourth one looks like a silkie pullet, the fifth looks like a French black copper maran pullet, and the sixth looks to be a rhode island red cockerel, and the last one looks like a polish cockerel if I had to guess. You will know for sure when the start crowing or laying! :) Beautiful flock!

    the first bird confuses me. She looks like a Cochin pullet, but she'd have to be quite a bit older than 10 weeks. More like 4-5 months, with that much comb.
    The second also has a pullet look, but older than stated.
    third looks like a pullet, stated age
    PASS on the Silkie [​IMG]
    Can we get a comb shot? First glance looks like a pullet, but there's red coming in on the back/wings that makes me think possibly male. And confirm age, it also looks older.
    Cockerel, of stated age.
    I think the Polish is a cockere from the coloring, but a head shot showing the shape of the top hat would help. So would a comb/wattle shot.

    x2 on the Cochin. Mine's 2 months older and doesn't have nearly as developed comb and wattles.

    I should have mentioned the breeds we have. 2 Cochins (black and buff), Polish, silkie, American, Swedish, cream legbar and a Maran. The 2 Cochin's were bought from a different place so they may be 11 weeks old.

    One pic didn't upload, it's my sweet little buff cochin named Lovie. I really hope this one is a pullet[​IMG]
