Anyone know what breeds these are? Genders would be nice, too!

    We got some straight run chicks last week, at about 2 weeks old. The person said that (obviously) one was a bantam cochin (splash) and she said she thinks two of them are purebred Brahmas, but that the rest are surely mixed. Any idea what the mixes might be? And which ones are the Brahmas? If you have any idea on what the genders might be, that would be awesome to know, too. Thanks!

    Here they are:

    If you want more pics, just let me know and I'll try to get some better ones.

    They look like barred rocks to me, I could not begin to guess gender.

    Yeah, I didn't think I'd have any luck on gender with their age and the quality and the angle of the pics.

    I'm new to chickens, but I think I can identify the Brahma's, as I have 2. In the 2nd pic they are the 2 on the upper left, close to the wall. I'm afraid I can't help on the others.
