Okay, in the bunch are 3 mixed breeds (RIR X EE) and the rest are EE's. I Know these aren't very good pictures, they are mostly skittish of us. Only my fave buddy Hansel was ok with being picked up.

Please give your best guess, I appreciate it very much! As a first time chicken owner I have NO idea what to look for, and googling hasnt helped lol.

Here is a very pretty EE I am hoping is a girl, Flufsy. Uh oh, does that look like a spur to you guys?

Here is Hansel, a RIR x EE cross. Murphys Law a boy name will equal a girl chicken, right!??!

This is Big Bird, who was stuck in his shell as a chick and had a membrane stuck around his leg and couldnt walk. He is huge now! The mixes grew much faster than the EE's.

First one - Boy.

Second one - Girl.

The first will grow to be very splashy with lots of white, and most likely have golden hackle and saddle feathers with some red here and there on the wings.

Yeah, in the last photo it looks like you have a lot of girls and a lot of boys who follow daddy's same color traits. I have an EE with a lot of white and golden hackles like that too, and am guessing he'll create offspring to look much like him.

I'm so glad because mommy is quite dull! I hope your chicks come out the same colour as mine, they are just so pretty. If I get two hens that arent brown I will be very happy

And handsome roosters are easier to rehome!

Oh wow! You have a lot of silver girls - The last couple photos show a lot of silver EE pullets. I'm sooo jealous.
