    Well dad would be Dark Brahma, Gold Brahma, Blue Partridge Brahma or Red Pyle Brahma. Mum.....well could be Gold or Dark Brahma or Warren.

    They look like roos to me:/ Anybody like to give their thoughts on sex and parentage? The ginger one is truly ginger!

    The middle picture with the white breast looks like maybe a roo. the others look like pullets to me.

    Thanks, I hope you're right about the pullets, I seem to have had an awful lot of pretty little roos recently!

    The two bigger chicks have started to scrap a lot in the last 24 hours.
    The light one has flown out of the pen a couple of times and was taking the corn out of my Brahma roos feeder whilst they were there. They did not bother with him/her at all and carried on feeding with junior under their legs. I hope this indicates that it's a hen! (However the boys are so big they probably wouldn't have seen the chick as a potential threat in any case). Junior escaped three times, so I let him/her free range with the boys and three hens for a while without any sign of aggression on any side.
    Still can't guess who mom and dad are, though,
