    Hello everyone,
    I am new to raising chickens and to BYC. I have found this site very informative and have learned a lot so far. I was wondering if you could help me out with the breed/gender of a few of my babies? The first pics are of Frances whom I thought might be an EE but I thought they had pea combs so not 100% on that theory. She has greenish legs. We got her at TSC and wasn't told what she was or how old. I was hoping for a pullet but as she/he is growing I am thinking roo because of the comb. "She" looked like a chipmunk when we first got "her" and I have become really attached to her even tho she was picked out by my son lol.. Such a sweetheart and loves to be held.
    Thank you in advance for any help you can give me ;)

    These are pics of some chicks I got from a local feed store about 2 weeks ago. Not sure what breed these are. All I know is they are Bantam. I got 3 of them. Any guesses as to breed, color, and gender for these guys? Thanks.

    A little early to tell for sure on your EE but I'm leaning toward roo.

    Your bantams look like mille fleur D'Uccles and salmon Faverolles.

    Your EE is most likely a little roo. Watch his shoulders, they'll start sprouting bright red feathers soon if it's true.

    The rest of your brood appears to be Mille Fleur D'Uccles. It's a bit early to tell gender, but I see at least two that are suspicious.

    First little one I'm going with EE and roo. His legs are MUCH larger than those on my pullets and he just carries himself different. The other bantams I don't have any idea . . .

    The 1st one is definitely an EE cockerel. The 2nd is a Millie Fleur d'Uccle cockerel, and the 3rd one I'm really not to sure on. It could be a Salmon Fav cockerel.
