    I got these from Meyer hatchery. I didn't order them and have no idea what they are or if they're girls or boys. They are almost 5 1/2 weeks old.

    edited to add: the one in the last pic isn't blind, it must've been the flash that did that to his/her eye.

    That's what I was thinking, but then I saw a pic of a leghorn and I thought they might be those.

    Is it too early to tell if they're roos or pullets?

    I'd say it might be bit before you can tell.

    The two in the first pic with black and white look like Barred Rocks.

    Yeah, I have 2 barred rocks and a dominique. I was curious about the striped brown ones with the reddish head.

    Actually, I have a buff orpington, black australorp, 2 barred rocks, 2 gold laced wyandottes, a white rock, a RIR, a dominique, and those 2 that I don't know what they are.

    Here is my roo leghorn, I don't have a pic of my girls right now. BUT.. how old are they?My leghorns had very black rings around their eyes and the girls had almost Cleopatra like rings with a line going out before their teenage feathers came in. They also had a dark line of feathers down their back. Here is Doc at 6 weeks and he is a Brown leghorn roo.

    The penciled one in the first picture is feathered a lot like my Gold Campines. If it is a Gold Campine it is a rooster because my gold Campine hens have very small combs but the rooster has a very large one. It could very well be a Partridge rock like others have said. It is not a Brown Leghorn. Monty

    That's the third eyelid!

    Could be partridge but partridge tends to follow the contour of the feather in other words V shaped, that looks more like the straight barring you would find on a Campine.​
