    Picked this assortment up yesterday... They had purchased the eggs of full size birds to put under their setting Bannys... My guesses are in parenthesis for sex and breed [I am a novice so no judging] :) Thanks in advance for your help! I love this BYC community!

    "Black One" Black feet/legs-some yellow spots, Black beak and single comb (Maybe a Maran Mix?/Pullet)
    [​IMG] [​IMG]

    "Black Four" and "snow" look like cockerels.

    I would say mostly mutts. Black Four, Hawkeye, and Snow have pretty hefty combs so I'd lean towards cockerels.

    I got a batch of chicks this past summer that had at least 4 like your white one with some black spots (only two survived the hatching) and they were all quite large. The two survivors are now 26 weeks, and though I had suspected one was a rooster, they are both hens. One has yellow legs, and one has black/yellow legs, and has a little gold showing on the neck recently. The hen that brooded them was a black sex-link. I had two roosters at the time--one B rock and one that I think was a black Australorp. So I don't know for sure which fertilized her eggs. And I'm very curious as to how they ended up white. !!
