    Hi all.

    I've got these 10 week old chicks and have no idea what breed or gender they may be.
    Maybe you guys can help. I dont have any pics of the daddy but he was a big white rooster.

    Here's a pic of their mumma hen (with her babies at just a few days old)

    This is mumma hen again and the chicks at about 7 weeks
    [​IMG]

    Now this is chick 1

    Chick 2
    [​IMG]

    And chick 3

    So if you guys have any ideas, id greatly appreciate your input.

    Thanks. [​IMG]

    Not sure of Mom's breed, but Chick #1 and #3 look like pullets and I would say #3 is a roo. As for Dad I would say maybe a white rock or possibly a white leghorn, but they look to be too big bodied for leghorn.

    Thanks txcarl1258 [​IMG]

    I've been thinking the same for the 3rd one. 'He' hasn't crowed yet or anything, but has started making a different
    sound compared to the other two. I really hope atleast one of them is a roo!

    Nah, it's still a little early to worry if you haven't heard crowing. It's kind of a personal thing with every roo. He may just not have anything he feels like crowing over. [​IMG] Count your blessings... I've had roos start crowing at 2 weeks and not stop all day long! I think you are pretty safe to assume that 2 is a roo.

    At ten weeks a rooster would have a MUCH bigger comb by now. I say you have all hens.
